I am using tne latest boot camp version on a macbook pro with the latest mountain lion version and updates . I installed windows 7 on boot camp,i only chose 32 GB.

 

I do not put photos or  music on bootcamp,I tried to download SP 1  update  and my computer said I do not have enough space the only program I installed

 

is a logitec program to program my remote control.  How do I make the boot camp partition bigger than 32 GB once everthing is installed and running  ?

    There are some applications that allow you to make your Boot Camp volume bigger. The best app is Paragon Camptune > http://www.paragon-software.com/downloads/camptune.html Make a backup of your data before using it.

     

    If you don't want to use that app, the only way is to delete your Windows volume and create a bigger volume on the hard drive

    You could consider using an external drive and an Windows Mount Point to make the external drive look as if it is a directory on your C: drive.  I used to use that technique all the time on my old Dell laptops running Windows 2000 or newer.  Just keep in mind that if you do this, you will always need to connect the external drive before you start Windows, otherwise critical files might not exist on the system at load time, and things may not work properly.

     

    You are probably better off using a tool like mende1 suggests.
