Hidden partitions

I know I have at least one "hidden" partition on my C drive, but when I click on C drive properties they are not shown or acknowledged in any way, except that the reported total megabyte capacity at 66.7 is far less than the actual size of the drive, reported as 137 Megabytes by Belarc Advisor. How to I get to see these hidden partitions. The computer runs Windows XP and the drive is formatted NTFS.

Hi
Go Start
Control panel
Performance and maintenance
Administrative tools
Computer management
Then under Storage look for Disc management
This will show your whole hdd and how it is partitioned.
