Yesterday I realized that the 6 GB I gave to windows xp when I first installed it on my MBP just weren't enough.

 

I tried to resize my windows xp partition using disk utility (on leopard) and PartitionMagic on windows xp.

 

Since I don't want to go into too much detail here, I'll just say it didn't work. I spent a whole day getting everything back to what it was like yesterday.

 

So, right now I'm back to where I started, and I still want to resize my windows xp partition, but this time I want some advice instead of doing what I think that should be done.

 

"Macintosh HD"

Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

Size: 180 GB

 

"Windows XP"

Format: MS-DOS (FAT)

Size: 6 GB

 

How would you proceed to resize windows xp partition to 32 GB, while maintaining an easy way to share files between OSs (I'm using "MacDrive" to do this)?

Use an app called "winclone" to make an image of your windows, then use the bootcamp assistant to completely remove the windows partition and re-run it to create the partition with the desired size. Finally use winclone to recover the old windows system.
