    I decided to delete my Boot camp partition as i was running low on space, yet when i go to disk utility, under partition, my mac hardrive has only 85 gb dedicated to it. Below it, there is a grey area, im assuming this is another partition, that is consuming my harddrives remaining space. I cant seem to delete that partition, or resize the mac osx partition. as i get an error with both attempts....

    Your disk directory is definitely corrupted. If you still can (and don't already have a backup) backup any important files before proceeding any further because trying to fix that error can in some cases render the disk unusable without a full erase. :(

    After you have backed up anything important if possible, boot up from your System Restore Disk 1 (or retail OSX install disk) and run Disk Utilities from the menus on the disk (when the installer is at the first screen). Try a "Repair Disk" from the "First Aid" tab though I have a strong sense that it wil not clear it up.

    That particular type of directory damage usually responds well to a session with Disk Warrior if you own a copy.
