I recently had to delete a Windows 7 installation on boot camp as it was getting screwy.
Im trying to set it up again and get to the partition part and give the new Windows 7  partition 203GB, but part way through I get the message:

"The disk cannot be partitioned because some fles cannot be moved.
Back u the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Entended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot camp Assistant again."

So besides backing up everything on my mac, reformatting and reinstalling, there is another way right?

Im using a Macbook Pro 10.7.3
