Boot Camp lost some HD space
 
Hey yall,

I tried to partition m drive again today seeing as I needed to reformat Windows but a encountered a pretty big problem. I started up boot camp and ran the partition wizard (which was taking a while) so I went and did something else for a bit. When I came back my MBP was asleep and would not wake up; so I had no other choice but to turn it off. When I tried to partition again it kept saying "can not partition this disk, verification failed", and when I looked at the available space left on my mac, it was 40G less than it should be. Coincidently, 40G was the amount of space I tried to partition.

Any ideas about how to restore the disk volume?

Have you tried running Verify/Repair Disk from Disk Utility?
