    Hey guys, so today, I tried deleting some linux partitions on my MBP to free up some space. Sounds easy enough right? Well, the - sign which lets you delete a partition couldn't be pressed. So in Disk Utility, I erased the linux partition and from the dropdown menu, selected Mac os journaled instead of MS DOS FAT because i figured it would let me remove it. Well, :mad: instead it decided to get rid of the other three linux partitions, and combine them into the one i just DELETED and give it 250 gb or so of memory. While it gave my mac parytition 132 gb or so, and in the picture below, it also said it had 132 free, indicating that my mac is empty, yet, my mac files seem to be fine. However, I havnt restarted my computer yet, and I'm afraid if I do it will delete my files. Any suggestions? :(
