Question: disk space disappears after deleting bootcamp partition which has not installed windows 10 yet

How can I repair to get back disk space? I bought a mac book pro with touch bar yesterday.

And I tried to installed windows 10 using bootcamp and it stucks without installing windows 10.

Therefore I deleted bootcamp partition and bootcamp was deleted though, disk spacing is disappearing.

How can I restore disk spacing? Could anyone help me please?

You can use an external NTFS-formatted disk as a Windows backup disk. If you can use two separate physical drives, one for each OS, it is highly recommended. If you have only one external backup disk, split the disk into FAT and HFS partitions, format FAT to NTFS when booted in Windows, and then use the same disk.


I do not recommend disk splitting for a Time Capsule disk.

Did you erase the whole disk or just the Container? Can you confirm the year/model of your Mac (do not post the serial number)? Do you have a Time Machine backup?


Can you post the output of


sudo tmutil listlocalsnapshots /

If you erased the whole internal disk and clean-installed macOS, use Disk Utility and try to create a FAT partition you want Windows to be. If that works, then your BCA is broken, which is also a known problem. If you get an APFS error, then your APFS file system is corrupt.
