I recently got myself a 1 TB hard Drive for my 2011 Macbook Pro. I'm currently running OSX Mountain Lion and have a Windows 7 Bootcamp Partition on it set for 150 GB. I realize that with the amount of games I want to put on there, 150 GB is not enough.


I want to know if there is a way to resize the Windows partition (there is plenty of room in the OSX Partition) without having to reinstall everything in the partition?

Create a backup of your files before trying to resize the partition.

If you want to resize your Mac partition, you can use the built-in disk utility to enlarge your partition. However, before you do this job, the first important thing is to back up your important things. Then, you can format your partition to free space. At this time, if you want to use the built-in disk management, you must make sure that the free space is directly behind the partition you want to enlarge.


Another way to enlarge is to use the third partition software to resize. You can refer to above post. "Buddyme2" already give your answer.


Good luck!
