Question: Missing disk space after deleting bootcamp windows partition?

Hi guys,

I recently tried to create a windows partition on my mid-2011 Mac but made the mistake of trying to install from USB. I decided to delete the Bootcamp partition I created but DiskUtil now tells me that 200+GB of data are missing somewhere. I looked up some solutions but they all seemed quite specific or didn't work so not quite sure what to do here. I've included some logs for your reference (diskutil list, sudo gpt -vv -r show /dev/disk0, sudo gpt -vv -r show /dev/disk1). I've tried wiping the drive then reinstalling osx via system restore, as well as trying to make around 200GB into MSDOS so I can delete it via Bootcamp - it says its too small?

Many thanks,

yd237

Thanks for your help,


I do not have a Time Machibe backup and do not have a suitable external storage device for it. There's no valuable files in the Mac though.


I'm currently trying this method: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/i-think-i-just-broke-my-new-imac.1973683/#p ost-22923054


But unsure if its suitable for my case. Anyhow, internet restore takes so long that I probably made a mistake haha


Thanks again

If you do not need to save any files, use a wired internet connection, instead of wireless, in Recovery, delete your whole physical internal disk (not just the partition/container for Macintosh HD), and re-install macOS. Upgrade if necessary.
