Default Partitions all showing as only 30Mb Total Size?!?

Hi guys, I have one internal 80GB HDD & another external 160GB HDD attached via a removable usb enclosure. The 160GB has recently started to act very strangely - it has five partitions however each partition is only showing as 30MB total size?!?! This isn't right its a 160Gb drive!! This shows the incorrect values in windows explorer, however when I view the partitions in Acronis True Image the correct sizes are shown.
I recently installed Windows Server 2003 on the HDD, dunno how that could have made any difference, I am just totally stumped why this has happened.

Has anyone got any ideas on a quick way to fix this ideally without doing a full reformat of the entire hard disk.

Thanks in advance
