    I recently removed a 40GB Boot Camp partition on my system. My Macbook has a 250GB hard drive. When I click on Get Info and other folders for my hard drive though, it says the hard drive is only 219 GB. However, in Disk Utility it says the capacity is 250 GB. Is there anything that I can do to report the correct hard drive info.

    How did you delete the Boot Camp partition?
    What Mac OS X version do you use?
    And have you selected the Mac OS X partition in Disk Utility or the HDD?
    Can you post screenshots of the Get Info and Disk Utility window?

    I believe I deleted the boot camp partition using Disk Utility and then I went into the partition to remove it. I'm running Snow Leopard

    Boot Camp Assistant is used to properly remove the Boot Camp Windows partition. What does Disk Utility say (screenshot) under the Partition tab?

    I'm having exactly the same problem. Removed a bootcamp partition using bootcamp assistant and now my MacintoshHD partition says it has capacity 499.76GB, available 27.33GB and used 258.15GB. Where is my lost memory?

    I have run repair disk on the disk and it did have some issues but these are now resolved but I still don't have my lost memory

    Can you provide screenshots of Disk Utility?

    Thanks, that is really strange though, as the first image lists your free capacity correctly and the second image lists it as less (as you reported).

    When you repaired the disk/permissions, did you do that from the Restore or Upgrade DVD?

    From the upgrade DVD.

    I can't, disk utility thinks the partition is 499.67GB (the full size of the disk).
