Troubles with partitions after installing

Hi guys, I'm from Brazil and I don't speak english very well... I've installed Windows 7 today on my PC, I'd tried Beta for 2 weeks on July and backed to XP... On first time, I'd no problems with partitions, but as it was Beta one, there were some bugs... Now, W7 do not recognize my backup partition (with 177GB) My whole life is in this partition, I can't lose anything there... I've found in Google some people with similar problems, but mines have 1 diference: WINDOWS DO NOT SEE THE FILE TYPE OF THE PARTITION -.- Link to Image: http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/4261/partio.jpg Anyone has an idea what I should do??? Thank's...

Are you using the built in disk management? if so you may need to use a 3rd party app like parigon disk suite.
