Sounds to me you used partition magic and it created an extra partition.
So what happened is because your drive probably has a partial partition, your no longer accessing the whole drive size.
You have to delete that partition and reallocate the whole drive size back to your windows installation.
I am not familiar with partition magic.
I know if your lucky to have an old Windows 95/98/ME startup disk laying around, you can use Fdisk from those disks to delete that partition.
There might be a way to do that from with-in Partition magic, but those instructions I do not have.
Perhaps someone else can explain that program to you, but I replied only to tell you what happened.
