Hi I am having issues trying to resize my Mac OS partition, I previously had a very large recovery partition almost 100gb as a result of removing my linux installation, I since resized this to 650mb. The problem is I am unsure on how to increase the size of my main Mac OS partition as I have no experience with this new container disk stuff.
Here is what diskutil list shows:
/dev/disk0 (internal, physical): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *251.0 GB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_APFS Container disk1 150.4 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_HFS Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 /dev/disk1 (synthesized): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: APFS Container Scheme - +150.4 GB disk1 Physical Store disk0s2 1: APFS Volume Mac OS 122.1 GB disk1s1 2: APFS Volume Preboot 20.3 MB disk1s2 3: APFS Volume Recovery 506.6 MB disk1s3 4: APFS Volume VM 1.1 GB disk1s4
As you can see I resized the Recovery HD partition but the container is still 150gb. I also tried the following command to try reduce the container size:
sudo diskutil apfs resizeContainer disk0s2 1g jhfs+ Media 0b
But I get the following error:
Error: -69605: There is not enough free space in the APFS Container for this operation
Additionaly within Disk Utility app if I view the partitions, it shows I have 99.6 GB of "Free space" but I am unable to resize the Mac OS partition as previously mentioned.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you
