Hello!

I am back from my linux uninstall. I repartitioned and tried to merge some partitions together, but it didnt work. Now Disk Management is reporting...that the size of my partition is...well lack of better words...here is a picture.

As you can see..I have no unallocated space. But the current disk has about 134GB.

I have already ran chkdsk...but no anvil

I would like to see my unallocated space so I could format a new partition.

Okay, So I formulated a fix and it works.

Boot into GParted using its Live CD and then resize the partition back down from 149GB to around 134GB.

This will correct the error and your unallocated space will be displayed correctly and even your current space.
