Lost space when formatting a hard drive

I've just installed a 160 GB SATA hard drive to use as a slave and have formatted it but it reads as 149 GB. I know one or two GB may be used up here and there but is about 10 GB right?

P.S. The other 11 GB or so appears as "unallocated". Can I "allocate" it so that I can use it?
