    Ok, so i deleted parallels, and it had a 250GB Hard drive because i split it with my 500GB that came with the computer, so now i don't know how were or even if i can get that 500GB Back!

    So basically when you install parallels it asks what GB you want parallels to use, and i split it 250/250 Mac/Windows, Now that i deleted parallels how do i get the 250gb back to mac side?

    go to disk utility and select the hard drive. Go over to partition. There should be a bar that has the disk graphically split up. Just drag the OSX portion all the way back down to 500GB. It will work for a bit then you're good!

    Sounds like you are confusing Parallels Desktop with Boot Camp.

    If not, then the default location for Windows installations for Parallels Desktop is /Documents/Parallels. Just delete that directory and you'll get your free space back.

    But it sounds like you partitioned the drive using Boot Camp for use with Parallels Desktop. You need to rerun Boot Camp Assistant and restore your disk to one partition.
