@Anak lol! That's funny, you can probably find what song that's from, those are the lyrics from some of it. Anyway I still haven't tried it yet, I've been doing other things.

@Anak Yeah, that's the one! Anyway, I still haven't tried the reset thing yet, I still don't want anyone to hear the beep... Can I disable the pc speaker? Or at least turn it down?

Oh look! I used a partition recovery tool and it found it! the unallocated 10.67gb partition! I'm going to see if I can recover it to how it was.

What partition was in that space? Does it have a label? Are you using Partition Wizard bootable CD Partition Recovery Wizard?

@gregrocker I used another one. I'll reboot and see if anything is different. It was the active@ partition recovery.

Can you cue up Recovery by using the hotkey?

What partitioning has been done since you got the PC?

@gregrocker I don't think I'm going to mess around with this anymore... I was using the program and then Windows said it encountered a critical error. It then asked me to save my work and then shut down... It restarted, and I got rid of the program. My computer is running fine though.

OK. in the future use free Partition Wizard bootable CD which causes no problems and can handle all partition operations Disk Mgmt can't, including scanning for lost partitions.

Do you think you deleted a partition?

How is performance overall?

@gregrocker well, basically I tried to recover it with that program I was using, and it came up in the prog as disk 2, which was the unallocated partition. I tried to see what was inside by just clicking on it and that's when I got the error. I haven't lost it, as It's still connect to my primary drive. I'm not really sure what to do now. The unallocated partition looks like it's ALLOCATED now, what going on with that? I know, I'll try the partition wizard you suggested. Overall the performance in normal.

I'm in Disk Management and I want to add some unallocated space back to my C: drive after uninstalling Arch Linux, but I'm not sure how I do this. Any suggestions? EDIT: I was hoping that 'Extend volume' would do this, but it's grayed out. http://i.imgur.com/fl5vDgs.png

unallocated hard drive space
I have a 5610Z Acer Aspire with Windows 7 (32 bit). I pulled a very boneheaded move getting to upgrade from Vista. I deleted my D:drive (50 G). I back up to a 500 G external hard drive. Is there a way to add the 59G to C:drive where I could use the space. Thanks Brightlight864:o
