I did a search, but couldnt find exactly what I was looking for...so here goes.. I have an 80gb hard drive that was originally in a sony laptop. I got an external case for it and had been using it as an external hard drive when the sony laptop died... It was partioned basically in half to have to volumes of roughly 40 gigs... I cant seem to get rid of this partition in leopard to create one disc of 80gbs again. I have used the disk utility tool and erased many times...but it keeps creating two partitions... What am I missing? Is it possible to de-partition a drive?
