    Hello, earlier today I installed Yosemite on a 20GB partition on my main drive. That was my mistake. I now know that I need more than 20GB to run Yosemite and my applications on the partition, seeing as there is now only 150MB free. I was wondering if there was a way to resize the partition without having to reinstall Yosemite or erase the partition. Thanks!

    Nope... you can't resize when the partition is on the bottom there in Disk Util. You will need to kill the Yosemite partition the shrink the Mavs one up, then add a new, larger Yosemite one at the end.
