might you not actually have 2 partitions. one of 10 GB and 1 of 168GB. i believe than that the 168GB partition with windows on it would still only show itself and not the rest of the drive. if that is the case then you should find out if you can some how expand an existing partition without reformatting(pretty sure you can't)

It's because your "new" 10GB partition is just raw space - it's not formatted as anything, so your OS can't detect it, hence why it appears 10GB is missing.

You need to format it using an FS your OS can understand e.g FAT32/NTFS.

Take the partition that you jsut deleted and recombine it with youre c:/ drive lol um I think you go to "rezie partition" and it should tell you maxium capacity and it will say X amount of megabytes or gigabytes and in the new size box type in the maxium capacity that it says

You dont delete it in partition magic, you simply hit merge partitions..
