Simply select the disk (not volume) icon, click “Partition” in the toolbar, and drag the grab handle to use the whole disk.

No money no goods. Scammers gave me non existent tracking number.Ive send them hundreds emails without getting any reply back.Only after opening dispute through the PAYPAL they send me another tracking number which is doesnt exist too.
Reported these scam bags to the Canadian AntiFraud centre,to the police, on the different websites.
Please if you want to save your money and time stay away.
AdapterChargerStore this seller selling non existent adapters and accessories to the computers and laptops. All the reviews are fake.Dont be stupid like I am.

Comment on How To Connect a 4K Monitor to a 2012 Retina MacBook Pro by René F. Gastelumendi http://blog.fosketts.net/2015/11/09/how-to-connect-a-4k-monitor-to-a-2012-retina-macbook-pro/#comment-36311 Sat, 17 Mar 2018 14:47:00 +0000 http://blog.fosketts.net/?p=9221#comment-36311 Right Rainier! It also looks beautiful. Nevertheless with the aid of the app SwitchResX by Mr. Madrau, you can achieve 60 hz refresh with Mac OS X a different resolutions in a 4k monitor, but somehow it does not look as pristine as Windows.

There has been much griping about the fact that the mid 2012 rMBP running Mac OS X maxes out at 30Hz with 4K, but boot up Windows on the same laptop and it’ll do 60Hz.

B/c it fit, he then went to use the printer, but it was broken. He then blamed me b/c it was my cord. I told him I did NOT tell him to use my cord, and he started swearing at me. After that outburst, I did NOT have s-x with him for a week. I did not miss that either. FOOEY on him!
