Default XP and partitions

I have partitioned my hdd with two primary and three logical drives dual booting Win 2000 and XP and been using it for a while with no problems.
I had to re-install XP and now my third logical drive is described as free space although it contains 30M of data everything else seems OK.
Any suggestions please?

Who manufactured your PC?

Sometimes computer manufacturer creat hidden partitions with BIOS data and restore images. Since its only 30M then its prob. the BIOS info.

Sorry,It's a Shuttle Barebones, with a 200Gb Maxtor HD, sorry not Mb but divvied up as previously described, the drive in question was working fine up until I re-installed XP Pro.
