    I was partitioning my disk because I wanted to install linux and the Disk Utility unexpectedly closed. Now I lost the HD space that was being partitioned. How do I get it back?

    Assuming that you have anything on the disk backed up already....

    ... you might try erasing the -entire- disk (which should result in a single partition), and then RE-partition it again.

    But this will destroy any data currently on the drive (on other partitions, too)
