So I stupidly decided to shrink my 620GB C: volume (when 85% of it was free space), and now it's at about 420GB.

I have no idea where the 200GB went, and now I just want to extend it back to normal size (just going to clean install Ubuntu).

I try to extend it but it says I only have 51MB of free space.

Any ideas? Using W7 Ultimate 64-bit.

If you are unable to accomplish what you want using the built in app in Disk Management, you can use Easeus Partition Master (http://www.partition-tool.com/).

Be sure to do a couple of things:

1) Using disk cleanup, delete all but the most current restore point
2) Empty the Temporary Internet Files Folder
3) Delete the contents of your Temp folder
4) Then empty the recycle bin

And of course, always backup all critical data before repartitioning the hd.
