    Cool Steps to backup data, remove partition & reload OS

    I am running 10.6.8 on a MacBook (black). I originally had it dual boot - running Windows via VM Ware and OS X. I am running out of disk on the Mac and never use Windows so I want to reclaim the space. Do I need to reload or does Mac OS X dynamically recover the space? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    You weren't dual booting if you had Windows installed using VMWare. If you remove the Windows VM and then uninstall VMWare you should reclaim that space automatically.
