I messed up my partitions

Ok so I decided to install ubuntu inside my win 7 ntfs partition, but then I had problems with ubuntu and long story short I uninstalled it.

Now I'm stuck with 15gb of space on my hard drive I can't access and I don't have any backups. (yes I know I'm a idiot)

So is their anything I can do other than backing up my larger files and just doing a clean install of win 7 to get that space back?

P.S.If I left anything out that could be of use please tell me

thanks in advance, EvilMrTopHat
