    I made a 10GB Windows XP Boot Camp Partition on my
    MacBook Pro Leopard 10.5.6 and have decided to get rid of Windows completely.

    How should i get rid of the 10GB Windows Partition ?

    Can i just revert back to 1 main partition for my Leopard Drive
    on the fly without having to erase the harddrive ?

    thanks !

    Re-run the Boot Camp Assistant and it will give you an option to restore your Mac to a single OSX partition, removing all traces of your Boot Camp partition. No reformatting required.

    Great. I thought i had to reformat my entire drive !

    Is there any chance that it will mess up and delete some of my data ?

    Meaning : Should i make a Back Up of My enitre Mac Drive ?

    It's a non-destructive process, so you don't have to, but it's a good idea to have a current backup, especially when undertaking a process like that.
