    Hello, friend! I have very big problem with Disk Utilities. I deleted Windows 7 with my Mac Book Pro, but Hard memory was not joining to hard disk with Mac OS. How made it?[​IMG]

    Some phrases do not translate well, it is a little hard to understand the problem but the picture has helped.

    You had Windows and OS X on your internal Toshiba HDD. 375GB for OS X on HFS and 375GB for Windows on NTFS?
    You deleted Windows but can't re-size so it seems that 375GB is missing.

    Maybe someone who has got to grips with the re-styled Disk Utilities can help? can you resize the Primary HDD that OSX is running on with DU 15?

    What is shown when you select your Apple HDD and click on the second button in the toolbar? What does the piechart show?

    Yes, the left indent disk identifier (with the Manufacture's name and disk type) only shows the total capacity of the selected disc. The indent under it shows the name assigned to the device and a bar chart with various colors showing how the space is used and shows free space.

    Try recovery partition, and use the "first aid" function at there.

    1) Holding "CMD + R" and boot your Mac (you can release the key once the loading bar appear)

    2) Once boot into the recovery partition, choose disk utility at there

    3) Click your HDD on the list (the disk, not the partition)

    4) Click the button that above the big HDD icon (the left most button on the top)

    5) If nil help, click the OSX partition, and try the first aid button again.

    6) If no fault found, click the HDD and then click 2nd left button, there should be 2 partitions at there (the white one is the space you want to recover)

    7) try to adjust the blue partition to recover all available space (you may need to delete the white one, make sure didn't delete the OSX partition).

    8) Triple check you make the correct adjustment, and then click "Apply" (bottom right )

    There might be a bug in El Capitan when BootCamp assistant attempt to recover lost spaces used for Windows machine.

    Your alternative is backing up the entire system to a time machine, and format the whole disk, recover, and done.

    Sometimes disk utility just don't show the Windows partition at all in any places.
