Is there any harm done in resizing a system partition from another computer?


Drive is in an enclosure - If I split the system partition on that drive, will the changes be recognized when put back in the original computer or does it need to be "active" when split?

You can resize a system partition in an enclosure. I recommend you use Partition Wizard or other third party partition manager. Always back up the important data on the drive first. Though small, there is always a chance things can go wrong doing partition movements.
