Today I spotted a question closed as dupe - Increase size of Bootcamp partition?

The original, however - whilst perfectly correct at the time - is now actually dangerously out of date.

iPartition is well past its sell-by date, can't handle CoreStorage & hasn't been updated in a long time.

The new kid on the block is Paragon Hard Disk Manager, with a feature set far above that iPartition ever had, including tools dedicated to backing up, moving, repairing, resizing Bootcamp partitions seamlessly.

Incidentally, it's also half the price of iPartition.

So, I feel the need to go round finding all the old questions to which "use iPartition" was the perfectly correct answer at the time & 'fixing' this.

Adding a new answer, especially on high vote questions is going to leave it struggling at the bottom of the pile.

Marking them all as dupes might work - but perhaps we need to generate one new canonical QA to link them to.

Any ideas/suggestions/potential wording for the new Question, or can anyone find an older QA that this could be merged into in some way?

I don't want to go at this unilaterally.


The great thing about having already linked the questions as duplicates is that there (should be) one location to fix. Provide an answer to the question which is the destination of the duplicates and it will be voted to the top. I don't think there's any need to do anything differently for this case in particular.

  • Do you think apple.stackexchange.com/questions/76402/… is good enough to use as the 'master' for this? I can flesh out my answer, add pictures, whatever - but I'm tempted to genericise the question a bit, remove specific Windows version, specific Mac model etc, fix tags... – Tetsujin Jun 11 '17 at 9:38
  • @Tetsujin I agree that getting duplicates to work properly is the preferred option. I've just upvoted your answer to get the votes started! My only suggestion would be to add some sort of disclaimer that you are not affiliated with Paragon Hard Disk Manager in any way (unless of course you are - in which case you should mention it). – Monomeeth Jun 12 '17 at 0:17
  • No affiliation - it's just taken over from iPartition in my toolbox of late. I'm away a few days; might start looking for potential dupes when I get back, assuming the swing of opinion doesn't change. – Tetsujin Jun 12 '17 at 18:47
