    Hello! I created a partition to install Windows 7, which didn't work out because I couldn't get my Macbook to boot from Superdrive. I gave up on the idea of installing Windows (I was doing that mainly because of a game I wanted to play), and then I deleted the empty new partition and resized my only and main partition in order to make it the size it was before. However, I can't get it to reach that size again. My HD total capacity is 500.11 GB, and no matter how much I try to resize my partition in Disk Utility, I can only reach 499,25 GB. I tried erasing empty space, didn't work out. What can I do to get my HD back to its full capacity?

    Are you accounting for the recovery partition?
