    So I was partitioning 100GB for a bootcamp partition and it I accidentally forced quit it. From the looks of it the main partition is still whole at 250gb but where is the 100GB of space? I was hoping to delete it and get the free space back.

    Did you use Boot Camp Assistant to partition your HDD?
    What does Disk Utility say?

    I did use Boot Camp Assistant to Partition, how would I go about checking partitions from Disk Utility? Also thanks for the very fast reply :)

    You open Disk Utility (Macintosh HD / Utilities / or CMD+SPACEBAR > "disk utility") and check the partitions via selecting the HDD you have and then the PARTITION tab.

    Can you make a screenshot and attach it to your next post?

    It's still one partition, but I'm assuming that the 100gb was taken into a temporary folder or something?
