Run DISKPART from the command prompt.


See if that has made any difference.

It appears that the FAT tables are incorrect.  This is one of the risks of running partition magic.  BACKUP your data.  Then schedule a chkdsk on the c: drive, and this may fix these issues, you do risk file corruption however so make sure you have a backup.
