Question: Disk space was disappeared after removing bootcamp partition

MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), 512Gb, High Sierra 10.13.3


I removed bootcamp partition. And now I have only the one Macintosh HD partition. The volume of this partition is less then volume of ssd disk by the volume of bootcamp partition which i removed. And I cant find that space. And I cant extend Macintosh HD partition.


The volume of ssd disk is 512Gb (available 500Gb). The volume of my main partition Macintosh HD is 444Gb. Bootcamp partition volume was about 48Gb.


How can i find that lost space? Thnx!

You must remove Boot Camp partitions with Boot Camp, as it will then rebuild the partition map and show the recovered space. The only cure is painful.


You will have to perform a destructive erase, repartition, and clean install of the operating system to rebuild that boot drive partition map, and recover your lost storage. You will need at least one full current Time Machine backup before you tackle this, and if you have the means, a boot drive clone to an external drive.
