Dual Boot Problem - WinXP partition lost space?


I recently bought a machine with Windows XP installed, with the drive partitioned into three parts ("/windows/C,D,E").

I installed SUSE 10.1 over top of the E: partition; I did not need to touch the other Windows partitions.

But I have found that Windows only recognises 7 GB on /windows/D, even though the "partitioner" tool says it's 70 GB (what it was originally). When I tried to resize the partition within YaST, it also only recognized 7 GB to divide between Linux/Windows.

What exactly is your problem?
Does anything stop booting?
I think that you probably chosen the wrong partition.
