    So I'm using bootcamp to load up windows, but now I have run out of room on my Mac partition. I still have 30GB on my windows partition, and I haven't even used it ONCE! Honestly at this point I don't think I will ever need it....

    But so my questions is, would there be any way to remove the windows partition completely without damaging my Mac side to allow for more storage? Or maybe just shrink the windows partition so that I can free up an extra 20GB or so?

    If you go into bootcamp assistant, it will ask you if you want to restore to a single partition and uninstall windows.

    Just run Boot Camp Assistant again to remove the Windows partition.

    thanks guys. I feel dumb. For some reason I had thought it couldn't be done easily. haha. It took all of 3 seconds. Not even a reboot required.
