Hey guys.


Here's the problem:


I upgraded clean to 10.8 and wanted to save my files so I split my disk in two, second one being smaller, to keep files in it. Now, after upgrading, I want to delete the new partition (it's 73.54GB and the whole disk is standard 2010 Mac Mini 320GB).

However when I try this, I get this error:


Partition failed with the error:

The requested change in size is too small.


I tried it using Disk Utility>Partition (I click on the main hard drive)>Selecting smaller partition>Minus sign key.

I get the same error wheter I am trying to do it normally or when booted from Mac Installation CD which I got when I bought the Mac.


Could someone help me?



Mac OS X (10.6.7)
