SOLVED: Tried to resize partition

I had originally planned on dual booting Ubuntu and Windows XP on this machine. On a 160GB HDD, I partitioned 100GB for Windows, and left the rest (42gigs or so) unpartitioned. I changed my mind earlier today to wanting only Windows on this machine. I booted up a linux live CD to resize the NTFS partition. Using gparted, I resized the NTFS partition to be the size of the current partition + the unpartitioned space. Unfortunately, it spit out an error, but it continued to try to resize it. After booting back into Windows, I saw that the size of the partition hadn't changed.

This is a screenshot of the disk management tool: Posted Image

The space is really filling up fast.

Is there a way to reclaim this space without a format?

Thanks for any and all help. :whistling:

EDIT: Solved it by using bootit ng
