I was beta-testing an Operating System and set up a separate 50 GB partition on my single 500 GB SSD. Now I cannot remove the beta partition. It shows up as another disk entirely. What can I do?
As you can see, I can't make any modifications to the partition structure (no + or - available, nor can I rename a partition). I should also add that the primary 450 GB partition is encrypted with FileVault 2, but the beta partition was not encrypted.
