    Hi guys

    I had Win 10 bootcamp but the partition was too small, I couldn't be bothered resizing everything so I figured I would just remove it using the assistant (which ran successfully) and then rerun bootcamp with a larger partition.

    However, when I run the assistant now, it gives me an error about start-up disk not having enough space. It has over 160GB free :/

    I've attached a screenshot. I've restarted several times :/

    I recently had the same issue. Strangely the removed Bootcamp partition space was not available in Bootcamp assistant anymore. However DiskUtility was showing it as restored. I've called apple and they advised me to boot up with the Command R button pressed and restore High Sierra. This won't remove any content/data from your system. After about 15 minutes, the complete partition was restored and could run Bootcamp assistant without any issues and use all available free space. Good luck!
