I created a VirtualBox partition (25GB) on my computer for XP. I decided that I didn't need it so i tried to delete the partition from my Hard drive. I couldn't find out how and I just deleted virtual box. Now 2 weeks later circumstances have made it so I need to put XP on boot camp. Now I try to partition my hard drive with boot camp assistant and it says "The disk cannot be partitioned because some files cannot be moved. Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again." So I have 2 questions. 1) Is there anyway that you guys know how to delete the partition without having to back everything up (as right now I don't have an external drive to back up on [I know I need to get a back up drive]). 2) If I do find a back up drive, and if back everything up with time machine, will i lose any of the applications that I lost the codes for? And will it back up my partition that I can't delete? Thanks for the help.
