Hello folks. New around here, and can't say I will be around here much. See I fell into that one "problem" we all get. You know the one. You scour the internet for 5 hours and come to realize that apparently, you are the first person in the galaxy to experience this problem.

But I digress, the question I have regards the Boot Camp program CampTune. I have a 15 inch MacBook Pro. I have had it since 2009. She's served me well.

I have run Bootcamp on it and have Windows 7 64-bit installed on the other side. Now, it's safe to assume that since I have CampTune, I want to re-partition the drives. So, I went for it.

Everything was going smooth until I got some error regarded crossed-files or something. So the program was aborted mid-repartition. I knew it would be a problem. I heard that this could be fixed by "fixing permissions" or something like that, so I did that and everything was holly jolly.

However when I ran CampTune again, I encountered something odd: I had three partitions.

One partition was for Mac. The other was for Windows. The third was titled "free". I am assuming this means that it is 80 something gig of nothingness. I couldn't click anywhere to tell it to be part of windows, or even part of mac. So it's just kinda there.

Not only this, but when I tried to open my Windows partition, it said it was all messed up, and thus wont open..

Anybody know how to fix this? I would like to avoid consolidating the hard drives, re-boot camping and reinstalling everything if I can. I mean, that's why I got CampTune in the first place - to avoid just that.

Any help would be very very appreciated.

Thanks folks.
