To resize your bootcamp partition, you:

  1. convert the filesystem to ntfs (convert c: /fs:ntfs).
  2. clone the windows partition using the free program Winclone.
  3. open bootcamp assistant and “restore” drive to original state (remove bootcamp partition)
  4. reboot, open bootcamp assistant, create larger bootcamp partition
  5. reboot, restore original image to new partition

If you have VM Fusion, you will still need to delete your virtualized bootcamp before Fusion will load it.  If you fail to do this step, you will get an error about changes in disk size. To do this:

  1. Close Fusion
  2. Open a terminal and do the command:
    rm -dfr “/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/VMware Fusion/Virtual Machines/Boot Camp”
  3. Open Fusion, load bootcamp partition
  4. Party like its 1999!
