Windows 7: Start, Computer reports 279 GB size |Disk Manager reports 1862 GB size

Vista Ultimate 64 and Windows-7 both are 64 Bit
 
 
Start, Computer reports 279 GB size |Disk Manager reports 1862 GB size

I have attached a Snip of each.

Seems weird but Windows keeps reporting the Photo Volume as low on space.

Is there a way to correct this and get the extra Gigs back?

Best regards,

Mike Lynch
