Go into Disk Management too see whats going on. Right click My Computer and pick Mangae. Then click on Disk Management.

Was it a spanned volume before the reinstall by any chance?

Are all your partitions in the same format?
When you reinstalled windows, did you reformat or just install?

It all shows up in DM as healthy and not unallocated? Just want to know are these partion logical and not just another primary partition. Is your setup something like

1 c: primary partition --->extended and 4 logical partition (d:,e:,f:,g)

Do they have thier own drive letter?
