    Hello all,
    I have an oldish MacBook Pro (I think it was the first gen of the Intel MBP) running 10.4.11. While it was in Beta, I gave bootcamp and try linux a try. Didn't like it, uninstalled linux. I now somehow have a 68 GB partition for my system, and 25 GB of "free space." It hasn't been an issue up till now, as I am getting low on space! Is there a way for me to expand my partition and use up the "Free Space" "partition" without losing my data and without buying a partition manager?
    For more info:
    SS of the Disk Utility

    diskutil list info:
    <i>/dev/disk0
    #:.................type name............size..........identifier
    0: GUID_partition_scheme.....*93.2 GB.........disk0
    1: EFI....................................200.0 MB.......disk0s1
    2: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD.......68.0 GB........disk0s3
    </i>

    And I realize this is probably a mess, that's why I'm trying to fix it ; )

    I'm not sure that Tiger's version of Disk Utility can safely merge your HFS+ partition with your remaining free space.

    As far as I know, you need Leopard in order to adjust your partitions without reformatting. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Can't you just use the bootcamp application and set it back to default?
