    Complete MAC NEWBIE, Bootcamp issues
    I m sorry, but I had to copy this post because its exactly what I got When I tried to partitioned With Bootcamp. This is new to me, can any one explain what this is and how do I fix it.

    It says 'the disk cannot be partitioned because some files cannot be moved' then is says
    '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'

    I don't want to format my mac just to partition the drive.

    Shut down all open programs (including those that start automatically when you boot up) and close all of your Widgets on the Dashboard. Then try running the Bootcamp wizard again.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Hey Thanks
    Thanks alot, but I was still having issues, I even bought that IDEFRAG, what a waste. But no success, I just backed everything up with my external hardrive and reinstalled OSX and now it works great.
