    Are you using FAT32 ?
    You can google disk mangement,there is a way to get those free space. I am not too sure- cos just shifted to vista

    You can check your disk with some Harddisk diagnose programs...

    Are you sure it is incorrect?

    For example a 200GB drive will have capacity of about 186GB according to Windows.

    This is because the drive manufacturers define 1GB as 1,000,000,000 whereas Windows defines 1GB as 1024x1024x1024 = 1,073,741,824.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

    well start by stating what disk you have, what machine and what operating system. also state is disk new addition, or was it working properly and then started behaving strange.

    ok, let me rephrase few things. please post what's your computer configuration (processor/motherboard), what size of free space do you see and in what program and what size of free space do you expect to see. also write was free space reporting correctly before and then started reporting wrong, or it reported wrong from day one.
    please don't skip any info
