Hi, supposing that I want to assign 800GB to Bootcamp Windows and the remaining of the 1TB SSD to Mac OS. Then later I resize the partitions. Will this negatively impact the partitions? Will files be deleted? I wonder if resizing using Bootcamp destructive or not.

Of course you do nothing before convenient backups for elementary safety reasons!
There is an application "Stellar Drive Manager" which must be run from another drive and says it can modify the size of MacOS and Windows partitions without losing data. But it insists to make backups first if something goes wrong so the danger of scrambling the whole cannot be ignored.

If I recall correctly, I used iPartition before. Too bad the company is closed.
