HELP disk management problem
I have a toshiba lappy.

It has recovery partitions on the HD as supplied out of the box.

I had Ubuntu linux dual boot intstalled for a while using GRUB manager.

I decided to delete ubuntu and recocer all the HD space for vista.

I reset the vista MBR so that it booted ok.

I then tried to use vista disk management to recover the 38Gb ubuntu space.

Unfortunately when i tried to delete the partition it said there wasnt
enough space to carry out the operation!

It looks like this at the moment...

How can i recover the 38Gb space so that i have two main sections i.e
one for vista and one for data?
