Some of you may remember before when I asked for help on how to resize my mac OS X partition none-destructively so I could install Ubuntu safely on another parition without reinstalling OS X. Well, that went all well and fine. My problem now is that I want to reverse what I have done. I set aside around 8Gb of hard drive space for Ubuntu and now I seriously need it back! (100Gb just aint enough on a 12" PB!) I have deleted the partition of Ubuntu, as well as its swap area using the Ubuntu LIVE CD partitioner, so it comes up as around 8Gb "UNALLOCATED". Now disk utility says its back up to a 90GB odd file (as its not truely 100Gb is it!) and says it cannot find any other partitions or lost space. I have iPartition which shows me the unallocated space, but is unable to do anything about it...infact it cannot do ANYTHING on my powerbook hard drive for some reason. Sure it can do stuff on external drives, but not my main internal one!!...so what was the point of this program exactly?! I'm currently using GNU "parted" off the Ubuntu Live CD. It doesnt see any unallocated space (but Gparted does, the GUI version that runs as part of the Ubuntu installer, but again is unable to do anything with it, even create a new partition there). I'm currently using parted to try and resize my partition back down by 1Gb and see what happens, see if putting a partition there again will do the trick, I'm not sure. Anyone got any perls of wisdom?
