    I recently needed to use bootcamp to install windows on my Mac. It was giving me issues about free space even though I had about 30 GB free.

    To fix the problem I tried to use disk utility to shrink my partition and then expand it back.

    It shrank just fine but when I went to expand it, it gave me the error: "Partition failed with the error: couldn't unmount disk"

    I figured it was because I had booted from that drive. So I boot up from an external Lion Recovery Drive and try again.

    I get the same error.
    Any ideas would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Never mind. I tried again after many failed attempts and it finally worked.

    The funny thing is that it worked when I booted up from the partition I was trying to resize.

    Thanks for y'alls help :p
