AH HA!!....I got it....not sure how or why I had so much unallocated space but I just extended the volume and all looks good now :)

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, it's been ages since I've played around in these areas I can never remember where anything is or how to correct it!...I think I'm good to go now, thanks again 3.0 and SKY...much appreciated :)
