I have a HFS-partiion, a bootcamp partition and 100GB free unpartitioned space "in between". How can I resize my Mac partition to use it? All resizing controls seem to be disabled, here's the screenshot:

disk utility with partition selected

Guess I need some more advanced tool than the built-in Disk Utility?

diskutil list results

This is under OSX 10.7.5. With Paragon NTFS driver installed, if this matters...

  • Does diskutil list show two or three partitions larger than a GB? You might be stuck backing up and restoring BOOTCAMP if the resize is more important than that partition.

  • Don't you need to select a partition to be able to resize it

  • I did select it, of course. Still nothing: d.pr/i/hA5F

  • Could you add a screenshot of this dialog when the middle partition is selected?

Disk Utility won't touch things once you have a BOOTCAMP partition.

Look for third party utilities like CampTune for on the fly adjustments (or at least ones after a reboot in some cases). You'll discover the same company Paragon that made the NTFS drivers, also makes CampTune
