Partition problem


ok i had to reinstall open suse 10.2 cause i did something bad. anyways, i have an 80 gb hd and when i check my hd it says i only have 19 gb total, i think i screwed up partitioning it in the begining, teaches me to not do stuff half asleep. anyways i dont want to reinstall everything again because thats a pain. is there a way to add that missing space to my hd without reinstalling?

By using this utilities it will tell you the total size, if it is incorrect then I thing you have a problem with your disk it self
