    Partition help?
    Hi, so recently I've been cleaning up my macbook and realized that I'm using alot of hard disk space somewhere. After looking around in Disk Utility, I realize I still have space taken up by a partition made a long time ago when I tried out bootcamp. It won't mount so I am unable to free this space. "disk0s3" is lightened out in disk utility. Partition type says "Microsoft Basic Data". How can I go about free this unused space? Thanks in advance.
