    Hey! I was partitioning my HDD, and then my HDD clocked, because I had too much going on. So I closed Boot Camp whilst partitioning, and now my computer is totally weird - I don't get more space, when I delete items or anything and I sort of simply LOST the 45 GB I'd set to my partition!

    How do I undo this?

    Thanks!

    Run boot camp assistant again and remove the partition from your drive.

    If that option is unavailable, then it may be a case of verifying and repairing disk permissions.

    That IS the case - I can't restore :(
    What do you suggest I do?

    Boot from your OS X disk, and run Disk Utility to verify and repair disk permissions.

    But I'm able to use the computer, just not that specific option - I found the "repaire disc permissions" button in the Disk Utility, but I didn't have to use the OS X disc?

    You have to to enable Disk Utility to gain exclusive access to the disc. It can't repair an in-use file system as well as one that is not in use.

    THANK YOU!
    Before, my HDD said I only had 27 GB left, and know, following your instructions - I have now retrieved 125 GB space!
    Thanks a lot! It was really important, that I got this working tonight :D
