    boot camp
    Not sure if this is the right section.

    I have a desktop with snow leopard i have tried to use boot camp but keep getting the message.

    Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format it as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again.

    1. what am i backing up my data that i have put in over the last few months.

    2.In the disc utility there are all sorts of things in there what am i trying to reformat

    Please help

    It means your hard drive is fragmented. In other words, there is not enough free contiguous space for Boot Camp to create a partition.

    You can either erase, reformat, reinstall, (archive and install) OS X or buy the iDefrag utility from here for $29.95. Be sure to make a backup whichever method you use.
