    Hello, all. I had a friend of mine create a partition for Bootcamp a while ago and when I tried removing Bootcamp and deleting the partition recently, I seemed to have created another disk drive in its place. Now I can't delete the drive or free up the much needed space. Can anyone help me fix this? Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

    I installed Bootcamp for my Husband a while back. From what I remember, I am sure you need to use the actual Bootcamp Utility to restore your HD to one single volume.

    While you technically don't have to, it is the best way. The other way is to select the drive (not the volume) in Disk Utility and select the Partition tab, then delete the Bootcamp partition.
