    I tried to create a windows partition using boot camp, but I got the cannot move files stuff. I used my brothers mac mini to run idefrag condense on my macbook, but it still wont partition as it says some files cannot be moved. What is the problem? Heres a screen shot

    I had the same problem (After uninstalling Windows to try and enlarge the disk)

    I called Apple, and all you have to do is

    1: Boot from the Apple Install CD that came with your comp. Hold C while rebooting. The Apple logo should appear and wait a few minutes.
    2: Choose your language in the menu
    3: One of the items in the one of the menus of the menu bar has "Disk Utility"
    4: Select your Macintosh HD. Click Repair Permissions, wait, Click Repair Disk, wait, Click Repair Disk again and make sure that it says "successful"

    It should work now!
