System Partition Size Not Correct

I installed Windows 2003 Small Business Server on Dell PowerEdge 860 over the weekend and moved all my old data and items.  The server is has a RAID Controller setup with RAID 1 with 2X250GB Drives.  When I installed the OS I selected to partition the system drive to 50 GB and data drive to 180GB.  Now in Windows the C:\ Drives only shows 4.77GB and the D:\ is correct at 180GB.  When I goto Disk Management the C partition displays 50GB but the partition under my computer only show 4.77GB.  I am running out of space on C.  I installed Acronis Disk Director and it picks up the C: drive as 50GB and is full.  Why can't I see the entire partition and how Do I retreive it without reformatting the Drive.

You only see 4.77GB Free or the entire drive is only 4.77GB?

i suppose you partitioned it as 5 Gb instead of 50. If not, run a chkdsk on the drive.
I would also test the drive - it can be bad

The Drive is showing under My Computer as 4.77 capacity and 100Mb Free.  The drive is partition as 50GB under Disk Managment.  When I used Acronis Disk Director it displays as 50Gb used.

I figured out how to solve it myself.  I used Acronis Disk Director to increase free space by a couple of MB's and then the entire partition is showing.
