Looks like something is wrong.

I would only accept PW as determinative using the boot disk. It's Windows app can be as wrong as Disk Mgmt.

Can we see a camera snap of Partition Wizard boot disk, burned to CD using Windows Image Burner then booted and maximized showing all listings?

Also can we see a screenshot of the Properties of C drive, especially the pie chart. Rightclick C drive to select Properties.

Definitely something is/has gone wrong. What is it? Look at the File System. It is "Others" and not NTFS.(in PW)

How did it happen? That has to be demystified.

Anyway let us wait for PW run on boot disk as greg suggested.
