Topic: Misreported size
I'm new here and hopefully haven't posted something that's been posted before (did a search beforehand but couldn't find anything). I've got a portable hard disk (57GB) which originally had 1 partition but set up another (10GB) for use with Freespire using GParted. I then decided I didn't want this partition any more so I used GParted again to remove the partition and then use the unallocated space to refill the main one.
It all seemed to work and the size was reported as 57GB (the correct size) but on rebooting and entering Windows XP, the reported disk size is 47GB (10GB less as per the size I partitioned first time around). I've looked at the drive within Disk Management which, strangely enough, reports it as 57GB.
Other than this, the primart partition is healthy. Is there any tips/tricks you know to get this missing space back?
