    I'm running Boot Camp and when I try to partition the disk for Windows, it says the, "The disk cannot be partitioned because some files cannot be moved. Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again."

    But my Hard Disk is already formateed to Mac OS Extended (Journaled)....

    Can anybody help me? I've tried defragging the HD but that didn't work either since it said it wasn't the right format.

    I have a WinClone backup of my Windows Partition btw.

    Somebody please help me. If I don't partition my disk, all those windows files I backed up will be lost. :(

    As you cannot repair the boot volume,try deleting the sleep image or verifying the disk in disk utilities,if there is a problem try booting from your install disk and repairing it from there

    also found this while looking around
