My own solution for the original problem so far: give up having a dedicated Windows data partition on the built-in disk split the built-in disk into two partitions: (1) OS X bootable and (2) Windows bootcamp bootable size that partitions based on some initial estimation; use a subset of this process (specifically, Time Machine for OS X, WinClone for ...

While you are resizing your partition, do tail -f /var/log/kernel.log or run the Console application and select kernel.log. This will tell you why the resize is failing. Unfortunately, it will only give you the inode number for the file or directory that is preventing the resize. ...

Don't write any more data to that filesystem or drive. You might try if DiskWarrior can scavenge some of the HFS filesystem metadata, but a program like Data Rescue is your best bet for recovering all of the files that are still intact without needing any filesystem metadata.

Since the table has most likely been written over, scanning for the files and backing them up that way is probably the only option. DataRescue is one of the more popular ones.

Any Windows Backup software of your choice. Altho you then might have to reinstall windows before you can restore the files themself.
