    Hi guys,

    I have an MBP with an SSD with 250 GB of space. I had a 55gb partition that was used for a Bootcamp install. There was a problem when I was removing the partition - some error occurred. Now, I've lost access to that 55gb partition. It doesn't pop up in Disk Utility as an editable, format-able, merge-able partition. It just pops up as a chunk of space known as Free Space. I can't do anything to it. I can't extend my main partition - I can't do anything.

    How do I fix this problem?

    I believe your issue is you have Filevault on and you cannot resize a Filevault volume like you want. Turn off Filevault and then try to resize into the empty space. Once you get it back like you want just turn Filevault back on.
