Question Hard Drive space issue

Ok here I go. I have installed a 320GB hard drive a while back. I decided a to dual boot with XP/Vista. After a semester in college, I decided that vista was not for me. Well, to end the story, i deleted vista from the boot drive and deleted the vista partition. Now, I have partition magic to merge the unallocated space but it still says 177GB. But when I go to the disk management it says 320GB aka 298GB. Did I do something wrong? Can somebody help me please. I do have a copy of partition magic but did I use it right? P.S. I have Windows service Pack 2 before the dual boot and after.

Default Re: Hard Drive space issue

Did you delete the partition and make it RAW? In which case Windows would not recognize the RAW partition.

As for the sig...make it size 2 text can use 15 lines then....
