    I was wondering if there is any way possible to expand the Mavericks boot disk and delete the other disk (Labeled disk one) on the same drive? I don't have anything on Disk one as I have all my documents in the Mavericks disk. I am able to resize Disk one but I can't figure out how to change the size of the Mavericks disk.

    I attached a picture of the Disk Utility Screen.

    Any help is appreciated.

    This should work (if there's nothing to keep on that second partition):
    On that partition screen, click the "Available Disk One" partition, and click the (-) at the bottom of that window.
    Click the Apply button to remove that partition.
    When that completes, you should be able to drag the bottom divider, underneath "OSX Mavericks", to the bottom of that window. Click the Apply button again to recover all the space to that partition.

    Thanks for the quick response that worked just as I hoped.
