My Winclone image is about 45.5 GB, compared with almost 150 GB of data, applications, and OS for the Bootcamp partition. The Bootcamp partition is almost full, and I have to delete my original partition and make a new, larger one with additional space for Bootcamp. (When I reduced the Mac OS partition with Disk Utility, the computer stopped being able to boot into Windows.) To double check, I made another Winclone image which is the same size as the first.
I have used Winclone to transfer Bootcamp to new hard drives for the same computer, but do not remember differences in size between the image and Bootcamp partition.
- Is everything from the Bootcamp partition really on the Winclone image?
- Based on these size differences, is is safe to delete my original partition, create a larger one in Disk Utility, and migrate the Winclone image into the new, larger partition? All data and program files are backed up in several places.
