Hey everybody, First off I am running 10.7.4 on a late 2011 13'' MBP I am having some issues with partitioning my HDD. I am trying to give myself a 60 GB partition in anticipation of adding an ssd in the near future. I want to get a fresh install on there and have the apps set up how I will want them after the ssd addition, just to save myself time later since I have the time now. The problem I am having is with disk utility. Initially I tried partitioning before disabling file vault 2, it wouldn't let me, not really surprised about that so I let the decryption commence overnight. I then went and booted into the recovery partition and tried partitioning the drive again. The add (+) partition option was still greyed out and it was still telling me that there was encrypted information on the drive. I am fairly computer literate but new to macs and osx and their file system (I have been using linux and windows for years). What do I need to do to get disk utility to see my HDD as decrypted? I am thinking that maybe I should try repairing permissions but I don't see the correlation between the two. Any help would be great, I would really rather not wipe the drive and reinstall (although I do have a time machine backup and a super duper image). Thanks everyone! PS. I'm new to the forum, my name is Sean. I believe that I'll be able to answer more questions then I ask, I promise I'm not jumping in for some quick answers then running without returning the favors.
