I am currently running on Apple Mac OSX Lion 10.7 (11A480b) and I am trying to resize my partitions on the disk for one of our servers. I already downsized a previous installation of Mac OSX Lion Server, which in the meanwhile was used as swap-disk for handling temporary overflow of incoming data which could not be transferred in the infrastructure while new data was being stored. After downsizing the partition from 860GB or so to 212.33GB, the partition that was initially meant to be resized could not be changed from the disk-utility.
I have a partition called Macintosh HD, previously quite big, a partition called Recovery HD, the operating system's disk, and a Windows 7 partition containing Windows 7 for diagnostic reasons. In the attachment it seems obvious, that after downsizing Macintosh HD to 212.33GB, Recovery HD cannot be upsized onto the space which initially was being used by Macintosh HD. There's only the option to create a new partition.
Here's a screenshot:
Is there any actual way to resize Recovery HD onto the space of the previous Macintosh HD?
