    Hello all,
    I had a boot camp partition on my macbook pro 15". Being the rookie I am I deleted erased the windows partition in Disk Utility instead of using boot camp assistant. I removed the windows partition and resized the Mac partion to its previous 220 GB size. The problem is the increased size that is shows in Disk Utility is not shown when I look at the info on my Mac HD. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I have an up to date back up on time machine and super duper, but I want to see if I can fix it with out reformating the whole drive. Thanks in advance

    Have you tried rebooting? Also, can you post a screenshot of your drive's partition tab in Disk Utility?

    What happens if you resize the partition a bit, say 10 GB smaller?
