I had portioned my hard drive into two (mac and Windows). Later I portioned the primary (mac) into two but figure my Windows were not loading so I changed it back into one. The problem is there is about 600MB of unallocated space that I can't seem to merge with the primary. Is there any way to god it. Mac Disk Utility can't even see it! Screenshot is below enter image description here

When I load into Windows, fdisk shows unallocated space. I did try to drag the partition handles to maximum, but that has not solved the problem.

How can I reclaim this unallocated hard disk space?

    Are you sure the space is really free? I wouldn't trust fdisk to accurately show a hybrid GPT/MBR partition setup... You might try enabling Disk Utility's Debug menu, then enabling "Show Every Partition" to see the things it normally hides. – Gordon Davisson Apr 2 '14 at 5:51
  • You are probably right. Let me try that. I have another question about GPT/MBR, I will probably ask that too. – mac_user Apr 2 '14 at 6:06
  • Try running diskutil list – PoisonNinja Apr 2 '14 at 12:45
