750 GB all taking up?

I have a 750 GB hard drive. I accidentally decrypted my hard drive. Then I went ahead and had it encrypt my hard drive again. Now I have 4.76 GB free and it is only 95.2% done why is this? please help me.

I got it fixed. It was only doing it because it was still in the process of decrypting my hard drive. Delete this is anyone that sees it can. I am sorry. I thought something was seriously wrong with my computer.
