Tonight's been a bit of a rough night. I have some programs that I use that run in Windows only, so when I got my macbook pro I installed Windows 7 via bootcamp. However, I realized I needed more hard drive space in my bootcamp partition, so I decided to reinstall windows. So...backup my bootcamp partition, delete windows and bomb my bootcamp partition, reinstall windows with a bigger partition, restore from my backup, right? Wrong...when I tried to delete my bootcamp partition, I got a message saying that bootcamp could not merge my partitions back into one partition. I tried going into the disk utility and manually adjusting the partitions, to no avail. The space formerly known as the bootcamp space just shows up as 60 GB of "free space" that I cannot combine with my Mac HD partition. Since I'm using a 256 GB SSD, I'd kind of like that space back. How can I repartition my disk to get this space back? If I do a fresh install of Mountain Lion, do I have the option to completely reformat and repartition the disk (like with Windows)? I have system images of both my mac and windows partitions from earlier tonight, so bombing the entire hard drive and starting from scratch isn't a problem.
