THIS IS NOT MEMORY ONLY HARD DRIVE CAPACITY.
the hdd capacity would not change unless the partition size was altered and then format in ntfs if a reformat was done then the drive capacity would not change unless the operator did some alteration.
details on how this change took place would be appreciated

Right-click on "My Computer", then left-click on "Manage". Go to Disk Management and post a screenshot. :)

the problem is that my brother forgot how he formatted the laptop. it was last year that he formatted the laptop and because of it i was totally enraged in what he did but to make the problem short i just want to make the memory back to 320GB. i used HDD regenerator this morning but the only thing that it did is to check if there is any problem in the HDD memory but my problem wasn't fixed at all.

See the Unallocated space? There's your missing section of the Hard Drive.

Look at the 97.56GB partition labeled (C: ). If you right-click on it and then left-click on Extend Volume, then choose the maximum amount allowed you'll be back in business.

(Leave the System Reserved alone - it is fine.)

Please ask if you have any questions. :)
