+1, this was way too frustrating to figure out. They should at least have some warning message.

Boot into an Ubuntu LiveUSB, start up GParted and resize it properly. Windows doesn't support Ext4, so I'm not sure how it even let you resize it.

comment Broken hard drive
@cbbcbail: Do you hear any grinding, clanking or scraping noises when the drive spins? If not, try plugging it into another computer. If that computer doesn't have any problems with it, try replacing the PCB with that of another working drive of the same model.
