    At one point I partitioned the disc so as to add windows. Ended up using Parallels. Now Hard Disc is full. I'm hoping to reverse the partition and free up that space. I've opened Boot Camp assistant but it won't let me do anything because it says my disc is full. Ideas?

    If you are using Parallels then you still need the BootCamp partition to run Windows.

    You can remove the partition but if the disc is almost full you won't be able to since disc utility needs space to copy the files about when it removes the partition...

    Best bet is to buy or borrow an external drive and copy your files across to that disc then restore the disc back to 1 Mac partition - assuming you don't need Windows....
