Missing disk space after Linux Uninstall from Windows
I'm a Windows user experimenting with Ubuntu (very interested in the OS). I installed Ubuntu from within Windows (one of the install options). Recently ran into some problems so wanted to reinstall Ubuntu clean to start playing with it again. After I uninstalled it (from within Windows), I noticed that the 15GB Ubuntu was using was still showing up on the Windows hard drive as being used. I have a 40gb Windows partition using about 16GB of space. When Ubuntu was installed this went up to 31GB. After the uninstall of Ubuntu, Windows still is showing 31GB being used at the drive level. If I do a properties check on all the window files/folders on the drive I get 16GB being used (which was the correct Windows OS size). Partition Magic still shows the Windows Partition as 40GB. Somehow when the ubuntn uninstall was executed the 15GB was not freed up. Don't want to do a reinstall of ubuntu until I straighten this out (currently only have 9GB left) . Anybody have any ideas?
Can you help with this problem?
