Out of a 40 gig drive when formated goes to about
35/6 gig so if it showing 35 it may be right.

I think that maybe on the low side. Just over
38 gigs, I would of thought.

If you are using XP, also include the size of system restore in your calculations. On a 40 gig hard drive, it will take up around 4 to 4.5gig of hard drive space.
