If you can boot into windows, run partition magic and convert unalocated space into drive or you can merge it with an existing drive.

If you cannot boot into windows, boot your comp from bootable disk or cd rom, run FDISK, delete all partitions and logical drives and then create new logical drive with 20gb of space...

Be aware that second suggestion delete all data that was on drive, and the first suggestion save existing data..

good luck!
