Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

There definitely is some consistency problems. 931-351=580. 931-483=448. 580-483=97. So your actually missing about 100GB.

What seems weird to me is the name of the window showing used space. It should say "Prudence ( F: )" and look like the properties window of drive C:. I'm not sure whats going on, but I think you must have done something wrong.
