    Hi,

    Ok at the moment I have XP on my bootcamped drive and stupidly only gave it 50GB on my MBP. So what I want to do is expand that to 100GB now I am assuming that I am going to have to run bootcamp and it will then wipe out XP resize the partition and reinstall XP. Is this write or will it not wipe XP?

    If you resize the Boot Camp partition it deletes everything from the drive including Windows. So yes, it will wipe XP, along with everything else. You will have to reinstall it.

    Yeah I would also like to know this too? I don't mind reinstalling everything tbh. I assume that the Image of my drive that WinClone makes has to be stored for instance on an external drive or something?
