Super Duper & Bootcamp? (Possible?)

Hi.

I have a macbook pro.

I ran bootcamp and for some reason I thought apple's tool allows one to resize the parition afterwards. Nope. My mistake.

I have created a 10 gig win drive, installed ALL my apps and it is working great.

Only problem is I would like to give it 20 gigs for a little extra room.

I see the "No Name" HD on in my finder (the windows parition.)

Is it possible to use SuperDuper on the "No Name" parition (win) and clone it to a exteranl FW. Run bootcamp again. Resize the Win Part. then Use Super Duper to clone back the "No Name" back up to the new 20 gig "No name" win part?

Sorry, Lou -- SuperDuper! only copies HFS+ volumes, not FAT32 or NTFS. However, you should be able to use a Windows-based backup program -- such as Drive Image or Norton Ghost -- to do this. The challenge is going to be restoring, since you'll need a boot disc...

Hey here's a handy tip that lets you resize a volume on the command line. Perhaps it'll let you increase what you have...

Super! (I've already backed it up using SD so I am not worried about trying this out at all.)

thank you!

I posted on their thread. If resizing sounds feasible, I will try it after my order for Ghost arrives next week.

Interesting:

http://www.macfixit.com/article.php?...60410110722732

UPDATE: MacFixIt reader Russ Cusimano has developed a procedure that allows your to expand the Windows partition without destroying it, or having to re-install Windows XP.

Boot into Mac OS X.
Launch Disk Utility. Make a new disk image of the "NO NAME" volume and save it (preferably) to an external hard drive.
Launch Boot Camp Assistant. Select "Restore the startup disk to a single volume."
Make a new larger Windows partition. Reinstall Windows and the Mac drivers.
Boot Mac OS X.
Launch Disk Utility and restore from the saved disk image to the new "NO NAME" partition.
Boot Windows. Find and delete all the "Desktop" files that Mac OS X left behind.
