    I have 1x500gb hard drive.

    It is currently partitioned in 2.

    Partition1: 250gb for OS
    Partition2: 250gb for files/music/etc

    I'm wondering can I partition 'Partition1' Lets say by half so 125gb/125gb.


    Ans keep OS ON 125GB but add the other 125 partition to Partition 2 to create 375gb?

    You can add a third partition, resizing Partition 1 to 125Gb and creating the third partition as 125Gb.

    Not sure about your second question.

    I assume this is an SSD? If not, just stick a 1Tb drive in and then you won't have to mess around so much.

    No, its the 500gb HD came with it.

    I might buy a 1tb soon actually.

    How difficult is it change Late 2011 MBP hard drive?
    I've done it countless times on Windows machines, just not with a Mac.

    Also are hybrid drives any use?
