I partitioned my hard drive on my macbook using bootcamp giving windows about 120 gb and mac 20gb. I now have decided to use mac more and would like to take some memory off windows and give it back to mac. Is this possible or do I need to format everything?? Thanks

1. Convert your Windows partition to NTFS, if it isn't already
2. Clone the partition (with Winclone) to an external drive
3. Using Boot Camp Assistant, delete the old Windows partition
4. Relaunch it and create a new, smaller partition (just make sure it isnt too small )
5. Cancel the install when prompted (choose Quit and Install Later)
6. Restore the clone you made earlier to the new, smaller partition
