    Ok now I am running out of space on my Mac OSX Volume but there is a Macintosh HD Volume.

    The issue I'm running into is that when I went to the Disk Utility to try and remove the partition it tells me that the Mac OS X partition is the start up volume and it cannot be removed the Macintosh HD volume says that "This Volume will not be erased"

    So what do I do?

    The Thing is that there is "2" Volumes

    One is called Macintosh HD

    and the other is called Mac OSX Volume

    So that makes 2 seperate not the same volumes that I want to merge as one.
