Hey guys,

I got a few viruses on my old partition and it got so bad that I had to erase the whole partition. I did the whole restore thing on the boot camp assistant, but now when I want to repartition it, (see picture 1).
It tells me to go into disk utility and reformat it, but it is already formatted as a Mac OS Extended (Journaled) disk. (see picture 2)
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
PaztheSpaz

This occurs quite often especially after restoring the entire drive to OS X.

First picture: You need to remove drive fragmentation. Several ways to do it: 1. Erase and re-install everything. 2. Special software. See here.

Second picture: Problem will go away after you solve the first.

Regards.

Do you mean backing up my data to an external drive, wiping the HD, and then putting all the data back?

Yes, that's exactly what you would have to do in order to eliminate the fragmentation. A complete re-install of OS X and restoring your data. The other option is to use software to remove the fragmentation= iDefrag. However, iDefrag is not inexpensive.

Unfortunately, unlike Windows there is no free defragmentation application available for OS X.
