    I recently bought an internal 250gig hd from Newegg but it's actual size is only 230, that seems to be a big loss to me, anyway I can get any of it back?

    It's not a problem, it's just two different scales. One uses gigabytes and the other is gigabits. I forget the exact details, sorry. It's annoying, but because of the difference in size you won't be able to "get the space back." My 80GB hard drive is actually only 74.5GB. :(

    I did a Google search and thought that these people may be able to help you more and explain it better.
