I replaced the hard disk in my macbook. I used winclone successfully to reinstall windows into the boot camp partition. However, when I reinstalled windows, winclone resized my Fat32 book camp partition to the old size of 5 mb which is far too small. Reading the documentation indicates this was to be expected.

I have read posts that winclone can be used to increase the size of the boot camp partition. However the documentation does not mention this for Fat 32 partitions, but only for NTFS partitions.

I would like to know if anyone has been able to resize up their Fat 32 boot camp partitions, with winclone or any other freeware program.

Thanks,

Shannon

    Hi Shannon,

    WinClone can not resize partitions that use the FAT32 file system.
    The resizing procedure only works with NTFS partitions.

    I don't know of any resizing programs for FAT32.

    You can however convert your FAT32 Windows partition to NTFS by:

    1) Logging into Windows
    2) Click Start then Run.
    3) Type "CMD" and press return
    4) Type exactly this into the command prompt: "convert c: /fs:ntfs"
    5) Follow instructions and you will reboot to initiate the conversion process

    Regards
