So do you still have the 320Gb disk ? Or have you now got a 250Gb and a 70Gb ?

Maybe you just hit the 4 partition limit for primary partition.
Check 'Disk Management' again to make sure. I'm suppose it's going to be like this

Partition #1 - System Reserve (100 MB)
Partition #2 - Windows
Partition #3 - New Partition
Partition #4 - Recovery Partition (usually hidden)
