So I tried following this tutorial to resize my bootcamp partition to add more space. I got to the very end where you need to do a restore, the winclone file mounts just fine but when I restore with the partition I get an error. The Log is attached.

Thanks for the help.

Winclone isn't abandonware anymore. So, on Lion I'd recommend starting with Winclone 3.x http://twocanoes.com/winclone/ not free, but supported once again.

Code:
/usr/bin/hdiutil attach  -nomount "/Users/emilagarunov/Desktop/Win7.winclone/Windows.dmg"

disk device is /dev/disk2
=====restoring image from disk image=============

 "/Library/NTFSProgs/ntfsclone" --rescue -f -f -f -O "/dev/disk0s3"  /dev/disk2 1>&2
ntfsclone v2.0.0 (libntfs 10:0:0)
ERROR(16): Opening '/dev/disk2' as NTFS failed: Resource busy
Something is grabbing /dev/disk2 (your winclone image) after it is attached. Likely suspects are backup utilities, anti-virus, etc...

You could try running
Code:
/usr/bin/hdiutil attach  -nomount "/Users/emilagarunov/Desktop/Win7.winclone/Windows.dmg"
lsof /dev/disk2
from Terminal to see what process is grabbing it.

Im actually running on 10.6, I just figured the tutorial would also apply to Snow Leopard.

I also ran what you asked, here is the response

emilagarunov$ /usr/bin/hdiutil attach -nomount "/Users/emilagarunov/Desktop/Win7.winclone/Windows.dmg"
Checksumming whole disk (Windows_NTFS : 0)…

/dev/disk2
MacBook-Pro-2:~ emilagarunov$ lsof /dev/disk2

That didn't report /dev/disk2 as busy, so it may just be that whatever is grabbing /dev/disk2 is only doing so temporarily.

You could try running the next step manually too. i.e. run Winclone until it dies. then:

Code:
/usr/bin/hdiutil attach  -nomount "/Users/emilagarunov/Desktop/Win7.winclone/Windows.dmg"
"/Library/NTFSProgs/ntfsclone" --rescue -f -f -f -O "/dev/disk0s3"  /dev/disk2
If that works all you would need to do beyond that is a few more things to make it bootable.

So I ran Winclone until it gave me the usual error to check my logs. Then I went into terminal and got this response

Code:
/usr/bin/hdiutil attach  -nomount "/Users/emilagarunov/Desktop/Win7.winclone/Windows.dmg"
/dev/disk2          	                               	/Volumes/Untitled 1
MacBook-Pro-2:~ emilagarunov$ "/Library/NTFSProgs/ntfsclone" --rescue -f -f -f -O "/dev/disk0s3"  /dev/disk2
