    Hi all,
    Mucking around with an iMac with a terabyte hdd running Bootcamp Win 7/Mojave.

    The Mac partition is only about 175Gb and the Win partition the remainder.

    Is it possible to resize the partitions on the fly without reloading the whole shebang? Is there a free app or gparted equivalent that can do it?

    Cheers - I did some reading and came across that and also the fact that gparted will work like in Linux.
    Except for the bit where it stuffs up MBRs :) Anyway, sorted that, got the entire drive to Mac then decided to upgrade to Win10.
    Upgraded to Catalina as well.
    Now I'm trying to get Bootcamp to partition the drive, which it is reluctant to do.
