    Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying Leopard as much as I am. It does pose a slight problem for me though when I try to use time machine. I have a 160 gb external HD that is partitioned half for Mac and half for windows because when I set it up I thought I would use Boot-camp and Parallels more than I do. (silly mistake) Any my problem is that I need at least 120 gb to use time machine so how can I delete the PC partition and allocate it all to the mac side or alternatively reallocate some more of the PC partition to the Mac side. (My preference is to delete the PC side altogether).

    Obviously I don't want to lose the info stored on the Mac side so a complete wipe and start again is not really an option.

    Cheers and thanks in advance.

    Kal :)

    With the disk utility included with Leopard you can resize partitions.
