Vista Issue ?????

I have been running Vista in a dual boot environment for months. I decided
to get rid of Vista RC1 and go back to XP. I reformatted the Vista
partition, created a new boot sector for my XP environment. Every thing went
well and I boot up nicely into XP. I decided to reclaim the old vista
partition so I deleted the old Vista partition. Using Partition Magic 8.0 I
attempted to resize my C partition to include the space where Vista was
installed. Everything appeared to go as normal with Partition Magic showing
the proper before and after graphic. I apply the changes and PM reboots and
says the changes have been applied. When I look at the C drive I see there
have been no changes made. The old Vista area still shows as unallocated
space and the C partition size is unchanged. I also tried to reallocate the
unused free space with Partition Magic with the same results.

Could Vista done something that prohibits me from reallocating the space?

Absolutely, did you use the new security data feature?
