Welcome to Seven Forums.
You have not lost any capacity, the difference is the way drive makers and Windows measure it. Windows uses binary system and makers use decimal.
Binary, 1MB=1048576 bytes
Decimal 1MB=1000000 bytes
Windows would show a decimal MB as 976.5KB
The drive may have some native files that came with it too, like encryption and software.
