View Full Version : [Resolved] Unable to resize partition

Apr 6, 2013, 08:26 PM

I decided to repartition my hard drive to use Windows 7 in Boot Camp but I changed my mind. This means I now have a lot of free space doing nothing that I want to claim back. In Disk Utility, when I drag my original partition to resize it (reclaiming the lost space) I click Apply, it goes through the steps (no errors) but the partition size remains the same and is not resized.

Picture is attached. How can I regain the free space again without having to reformat my hard drive and everything?

Try running Bootcamp Assistant and there is a choice to remove a Bootcamp/Windows partition.

Thanks for replying.

I just reformatted and reinstalled everything. I did the partition using Disk Utility, not Bootcamp.
