I needed to remove my old windows bootcamp partition, which took up 50GB. Bootcamp itself would not let me do this, as it kept requiring me to have 40GB of storage, which I could not make (my mac is at full capacity, due to the 50GB empty windows partition). I do not understand why i need 40gb of space in order to free up space, but regardless, I ended up doing the (risky?) brute force removal of the partition through disk utility. (I erased the partition contents, and then converted it to an APFS container, since i thought that would let me merge them together, but it did not. Right now, im not really sure whats going on, as disk utility shows i have a "APFS container" with 50GB?
Here is the print out when running
diskutil list in terminal:
/dev/disk0 (internal): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme 251.0 GB disk0 1: EFI EFI 314.6 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_APFS Container disk1 200.0 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_APFS Container disk2 49.9 GB disk0s3 /dev/disk1 (synthesized): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: APFS Container Scheme - +200.0 GB disk1 Physical Store disk0s2 1: APFS Volume Macintosh HD 192.0 GB disk1s1 2: APFS Volume Preboot 20.4 MB disk1s2 3: APFS Volume Recovery 517.8 MB disk1s3 4: APFS Volume VM 2.1 GB disk1s4 /dev/disk2 (synthesized): #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: APFS Container Scheme - +49.9 GB disk2 Physical Store disk0s3
How can I merge
disk0s2 so I can have only 1 disk partition with the full 250GB storage capacity of my SSD?
