Can't Delete a Partition on my hard drive

Hi there,

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate and I have a 500 GB HDD. It is currently partitioned in half. I am trying to delete the partition but the option is grayed out when I go into Disk Management.

I deleted the contents of the partition, it still says that there is 50 GB being used. I can't see anything in the drive though. I checked Restore Points and the Recycle Bin. I was trying to include some screenprints but I can't see to make it work.

If anyone can help, I would appreciate it. Let me know if you need any additional information.
