Deleted Partition Query

XP Home SP3. I have drive C and seperate internal Q. Q was petitioned with an R Q is my cloned bootable drive and R was odds and sods. I was down to 20 gigs on the Q so decided to delete R with Easeus as it had approx 100gigs un-used R has gone, but I still only have 20gigs left showing on Q. I did not format R first--perhaps I should have done. Q is still operating OK. Where did I go wrong and how to reclaim the apparent lost space? Thanks.

Fruit Bat /\0/\ Thanks. I realised after posting that I had to resize the Q as well but obviously didn't get the figures right as Q is still the same size, but working OK. Will do it right tomorrow with your link, which I remember reading when I first partitioned it. Teach me a lesson not to be clever by not reading it again. Will post back.
