    I created a partition of 30gb for a place to files and general dump. Im guessing i dont need it anymore.... just sitting idle. Could leave it... suppose i could install vista on it? Anyway .....

    Before i attempt to delete by myself i thought id ask you clued up people if its possible without affecting the main partition which has snow leopard - which has no issues as far as i can tell - so i dont want to do a clean install or even use the superduper clone. (i keep two weekly updated cloned external drives via superduper so im covered).

    Shall i just use Disk Utility?
    Is it possible to delete a partition using a boot from the other bit of the partition?

    It should be okay to just remove it with Disk Utility and then drag the size of your main partition to 100%.
