I'd like to ask for some advice if possible regarding the Bootcamp partition on my macbook.
I set up Bootcamp a while ago to run Windows XP, but I now realise I need to increase the size of the partition.
There is software called CamptuneX which I thought might do the job, but their customer care told me it will only work with a partition which is NTFS not FAT32 like mine. They say it might work with FAT32 but if I try it's at my own risk. (Even though the earlier versions of Camptune were made for FAT32).
I know it's straightforward enough to blank the partition and start again, but I'd like to avoid that hassle; my Windows XP was bought from ebay and is registered with microsoft as legitimate, but I've heard tales that I might encounter problems with microsoft if I tried to re-register, even though it will be on the same computer. Also I've been running Dragon Dictate on the windows partition (it's the only software I run in Windows, and it's needing more and more space), and I don't want the hassle of having to set that up again.
My OS is 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard).
Has anyone out there used CamptuneX? Is there a way of copying the contents of the partition on to say an external harddrive, wiping the partition, and then putting the contents back on?? (Is that a stupid idea?)
Yes I know I'm a bit thick regarding such matters, and I'd be grateful for any advice.
