    I added my bootcamp partition to parrallels desktop.I removed the VM and opted to Keep the files. Naively, I ran the following commands.

    diskutil list
    diskutil eraseVolume jhfs+ BC1 disk0s3
    diskutil eraseVolume fat32 BOOTCAMP disk0s3

    I then set out to restore my HD using BC assistant.It said that there was some error so I ran First AID on my completely empty Bootcamp partition.After clicking done to continue,the partition VANISHED.

    So I was left with 100 gb space missing Here is my output when I list all the drives.

    0: GUID_partition_scheme 251.0 GB disk0
    1: EFI EFI 314.6 MB disk0s1
    2: Apple_APFS Container disk1 150.0 GB disk0s2

    /dev/disk1 (synthesized):
    0: APFS Container Scheme - +150.0 GB disk1
    Physical Store disk0s2
    1: APFS Volume Macintosh HD 95.7 GB disk1s1
    2: APFS Volume Preboot 56.0 MB disk1s2
    3: APFS Volume Recovery 512.4 MB disk1s3
    4: APFS Volume VM 2.1 GB disk1s4

    Also the following command ,

    diskutil cs list

    ..returns the following:

    No CoreStorage logical volume groups found

    Although on apple forums I saw that they returned an output

    Is there a way I could perhaps make another partition taking up the remaining space and merge it with my main HD? Any help would be appreciated!!
