What size drive do you have?

What is PM8 showing you have?

What is XP diskmanagement showing you have?

Its showing full, why are you so sure you have only used half?

HAve you tried defragging?

Make sure in C: > Properties, the option 'Compress drive to save disk space' is UNticked.

Failing which, try with a similar partitioning tool - the free Paragon Partition Manager 2005 click here (within Windows). Or GParted LiveCD click here (boot from CD). G
