    As you can see, I have just under 40 gigs of unused space on my hard drive. I can't seem to get it back! I've tried (pretty much) every option I can think of, and I just don't see the one i want!

    Little help?

    Additionally, i'd like to move the system to the front of the drive, and partition off the end of the drive for my media (music, photos). What's the simplest way to steal 150gigs from the C drive for a partition?

    Have you already altered the partitions? If so, your recovery partition looks like it's stuffed and no longer usable. Do you have recovery CD's? Since your recovery files and operating system installation files seem to be gone, anyway, you could udr a third-party partitioning tool to remove the EISA partition and move your C: partition to the front.
