    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Are you running a RAID or LVM group on /dev/sde? /dev/sdc is your Linux boot drive and swap space. /dev/sda and /dev/sdb are Windows file systems. Without more information about what is on that device mapped to /dev/sde, I can't recommend that you try anything to do with it. However, since there doesn't appear to be much Linux user space anywhere else, my guess is that it is a Linux file system(s). However, you state that you only have three HDD's, so the question arises as to what /dev/sde really is...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I have three HDs connected via a PCI IDE expansion board and are not in RAID config. The expansion board is seen as as SCSI device by the system.

    I have disconnected all the USB devices and I have run "fdisk -l" again, results below.
