Volume size and partition size inconsistency

Win2008R2 x64 (I think it's quite compatible to Win 7). I'm trying to resize my disk C: to the whole partition , but when I run Disk Management (via run as admin) , it shows me the following weird picture:

When I call "Shrink volume" command from the local menu, it hangs for about 1 minute and then shows this msgbox:


CHKDSK and SFC found nothing. What I'm doing wrong? And how to have this issue fixed?

open an elevated command prompt and start DISKPART List all volumes of the pc.
DISKPART> list volume
Select the volume that has the wrong file system size. x is the ID of the effected volume.
DISKPART> select volume [x]
Extend the file system
DISKPART> extend filesystem
