    Default Lossing gigs on my 500gb sata HD

    I have a Western Digital Raid 500gb HD. My problem is I have 19gb of info use on my HD That I check by highlighting everything and click properties but when windows look at it it say 85.3 used I know that a 500gb will not be exactly 500 it's more around 465gb. But I know for sure that I never use 85gb When I had windows xp I had less files and I around 40gb used but I had a different HD 160gb is there anything that I can do to have my exact Storage reading The list below will give you a clue to what i'm working with.
    I also have a sata 2 port raid pci card with the second HD 160 is plug into 1 port and a multi Card Reader in the other.

    Did you upgrade from XP to Vista, or is this a new PC with Vista installed? The reason I ask, is that a tech I know said that if upgrading from XP or Vista is installed on a PC that was built before Vista release, he's found compatability problems between Vista and nVidia. The fix is to update BIOS. Not saying that this is your problem, but did see you had both. Stay tuned, others will probably have some ideas.
