Take a look here:

Hard Drive Capacity Calculator - Epowermac

theog is right. i have never used that calculator but i know that the space use for the format is roughly 7%, so the combined size of the two partitions is correct.

Not so - 100GB in decimal and 93GB in binary are the same thing. They are both 100 billion bytes. It is just another currency because 1KB is 1000 bytes in decimal and 1024 bytes in binary.

Yeah he is right.

My HD is the same way. It says I got 250 Gigs but I only got like 232.8 gigs.

You can change it with third party software, I recommend not doing it though. It holds information so it can repair windows if it messes up.

OK now that you know how to operate cmd correctly (always follow guidance), let me tell you what you can do. If you want 10GBs of shadowstorage (that's where the restore points are being kept), paste the following command into the cmd window and hit Enter.

vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=10GB


You will lose your current restore points in the process though. But you will soon have new ones. I personally would not reduce the shadowstorage until you reall need the space. It is always good to have as many restore points as possible - and figure up to 1GB per restore point.
Besides, there is no way to move the shadowstorage to another volume. It always belongs on the volume for which the shadows (restore points) are being taken.

I wish you would stop those unqualified posts that do not contribute to the solution of the OP's problem.
