A friend has 80% of the drive formatted as "Free Space" He cannot access it and we can't find a way to delete the partition.

he effectively has 100GB available. I tried to change the partition to OSX Journaled. But it doesn't stick.

Any assistance or pointers?

Can you resize the existing partition to take over the free space? Give this (http://osxdaily.com/2009/11/20/resize-partitions-in-mac-os-x-with-disk-utility/) a look.

If you are still stuck, go to the partition tab in Disk Util and post a screen shot up here so we can take a look.
