    Has anyone tried using the windows Disk Management to shrink a WFBS partition that has ISO in it? I'm thinking it would be a bad idea.. but it would be nice to know if anyone has tried it.

    Conversly has anyone done the opposite and increased the partition?

    I doubt it would work as WFBS is a newly developed structure that is used nowhere else. Chances are that it would just be read as corrupted data.

    I'd also like to know about expanding the partition. I stupidly only made the partition 200gb and I'm fast approaching the limit!

    It can't be done with the tools that is currently available. You will need to make your own tool or edit the partition table with a hex editor.
