    So I wanted to get rid of my Windows partition so that I could install it again with more space and clean slate. I went to Disk Utility and clicked on the Bootcamp partition. I then went up to the erase button and clicked erase. When I was done, I realized that the memory from that partition had not been added onto my available space in MacOS. An hour of google searches has taught me the proper way to remove a partition and now my problem now is that all of this memory isn't being utilized and I have no clue how to have it recognized again. I have a 2016 MacBook Pro (Touchbar) that's currently using 369 of it's 512 GB. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    EDIT: I've added what the return of "diskutil list" is for me.

    Normally, you should remove a Bootcamp partition through the Bootcamp utility. What happens when you go into Bootcamp utility? Does it still give you the option to remove the Windows partition and recover the space? If not, then go back to Disk Utility, pick your disk, and select "Partition." It may give you the opportunity to expand your disk to the full size from there.

    I went into Disk Utility and attempted to expand the partition. It started at 7:22 est and now it’s 7:43. The computer is unresponsive (which is expected when working with disk utility) but the screen just turned black (keyboard still on) and i’m not sure what to do anymore. Any ideas?

    I was able to restart the computer and run the process again. It completed much faster than I waited before but now this is what I'm seeing (attached screenshots). I think I was able to follow through with expanding the partition, but some of the interface is confusing. I've also tried running Boot Camp Assistant again and it sees the full 500 GB but it says Disk Utility is having a problem and doesn't complete. Any ideas what to do next?

    Btw, I just got your username reference! haha

    Have you tried running First Aid on the disk?

    These are the errors I got after running first aid:
    Code:
    Checking the fsroot tree.
    error: invalid dstream.default_crypto_id (0x4), given apfs_fs_flags (0x1)
    error: xf : INO_EXT_TYPE_DSTREAM : invalid dstream
    error: inode_val: object (oid 0xda879): invalid xfields
    fsroot tree is invalid.
    The volume /dev/rdisk1s1 could not be verified completely.
    File system check exit code is 0.
    After restarting, Disk Utility recognized all of the space that should be available to MacOS right now but Boot Camp still fails to partition because of an error in disk utility.
