    While I was partitioning my disk, disk utility froze, along with my whole system. So I was forced to reboot.
    Now my Mac thinks there's an 80 gb chunk of data somewhere (the data that would have been my partition), but I can't find it. How do I regain the lost space?

    It didn't freeze, it locked the system disk to prevent the OS from aborting the partition.

    Ah, thanks for explaining what happened.
    But do you know how to get back the 80 gb of data missing from my hard drive?
