Lost disk capacity after re-installing XP

Hello

I recently had cause to re-install xp from the partitioned area of my hard drive, and have found a bit of an unexpected problem...

My hard drive is partioned into "c" and "D" and when added together, the capacities of both of these "drives" was 160GB. When I checked the drives after the re-install, I found that Id lost 11GB.

Can anyone help with this?

Cheers

Can you say where you are quoting the capacities from?

When you say "lost 11GB" - do you mean 11GB less free space, or what?

Hi DieSese. I took the capacities from the properties boxes on the "My Computer" drive icons

What are the totals for each drive?
