Hi Paul, many thanks. Yes I believe the whole partition is actually used up 
by Windows. I also have a hidden recovery partition. I say hidden as Windows 
sees it in Computer/Windows Explorer, however if I open it I'm told that 
this is a recovery partition and that I shouldn't go and muck about with it, 
as it were.
