• Is there a way to resize and access the other OS' partitions' data?

    Boot Camp's updated 64-bit W10 Home is sure a disk hog and only has 11
    GB free while macOS Mojave v10.14.6 (still using it for 32-bit app
    support) has way more. I hope I don't have to start all over again. :(

    Also, I'd love to have each OS be able to access each other's
    partitions. Booted updated 64-bit W10 access macOS' partition's data and
    booted macOS access W10's Boot Camp partition's data.

    2012 MBP is using updated macOS Mojave v10.14.6 and encrypted APFS.

    Thank you for reading and hopefully answering soon. :)

    I don't know how bootcamp is setup on Mojave. If that partition is APFS, then you may be able grow the partition and shrink the MacOS partition. That's what volume managers give you. I doubt this is the case as Apple or whomever would have to supply a version of W10 that can boot on APFS volumes. There may be such an extension for a running system, but I doubt there's one for a base OS install. That would require Microsoft and Apple dev teams to have quite intimate relations. I doubt that would happen.

    If it's NTFS or some other format, then you have to backup EVERYTHING, wipe
    the drive, reformat to reallocate space, and restore MacOS and Win10 from backups.

    This is why I run Win10 in a VM.

    This is another reason running a VM is better: no need to partition,
    since everything is stored in a disk image file which can be located
    anywhere you want in the macOS file system.
