    Has anyone here used winclone to resize a bootcamp partition? I need to make mine larger. Is it a difficult process, and has it given anyone any issues afterwards?

    Which Mac, version of OS X and version of Winclone are we talking about?

    I've used Winclone 2.x on 10.5/10.6 extensively, but things get a bit more complicated with 10.7/10.8.

    Resizing Boot Camp

    Yes, you can use Winclone 3 to resize your Boot Camp to a larger partition. Make sure to do a file-based backup along with creating the Winclone image. There is a tutorial here: http://twocanoes.com/support/winclone/resizing-a-bootcamp-partition-with-winclone

    Since you will be increasing the size of the Boot Camp partition, you can skip the step on shrinking the file system prior to imaging.

    If you have questions or problems, please send us an email at support@twocanoes.com. Best of luck.
