    Hi all, I was wondering of one of you could help me out with this:

    I have a 2012 13'' MBA, and am loving it. Like many other MBA users, free space is precious with only 128GB of space. About a week ago I installed a 20GB BootCamp partition running Windows 7. After very quickly running out of space on there, I decided to erase the BootCamp, and create a newer, larger one. However in the step where you select the amount of space you want the partition to take up, I am unable to move the slider to select more than 20GB. I went to "About This Mac" to see how much storage I have, and I ran into this:


    But when I go to Disk Utility, I see this:


    (I changed the name of the partition from "Macintosh HD" to "Macintosh SSD" for fun)

    As you can see, my Macintosh Partition is only taking up about 100GB of space instead of the 120GB like I want it to. Is there any ways to resize it, or is it a bug or what? Any help would be appreciated.
