Its just the way hard drives are. Every "500 gb" HDD will actually read as 465gb. There is a reason behind it but I don't know all the exact details so I'll someone else explain the specifics.

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.

mine says the exact same thing. it has to do with the math they use to determine the overall hd space.
