So I bought an 500 GB Hard driver to my computer like half year ago...

But there is a problem that disturbing me.
No matter if I format to Windows XP or Vista, problem stays.
Somewhy my computer shows that the disk has only 465GB.
Is there any explanation for that? =S

This happens to everybody. Hard drives advertise their hard drive space every 1000KB as 1MB, when it reality Windows takes in 1024KB as 1MB. This adds up and eventually this will amount to 35GB of your missing space. This happens to me on my 2TB drive as I have lost about 200GB.
