Specs: Windows Vista
I have a pretty big chunk of unallocated space on my 1.5TB HDD. 146.3 gigs to be exact. I've tried everything to be able to use this space, tried extending my C: drive over it, the whole thing and in small pieces. I've also tried just making it a simple volume in the disk management tool, no matter what I try to do I get a message saying: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. How can I use my unallocated space, and what process is using it?

Wonder if it is a recovery area needed to restore your system back to OEM state?
