The advertised size of hard drives is usually the UNFORMATTED size and while legal probably not a moral truth
Formatting ANY hard drive consumes space for various reasons (you can google the details)
You are probably not being dudded by XP ... but by convention

Thanks for the replies, thats good or bad to know, but 35GB is a big loss of space on a HDD.
You haven't lost anything!!!!
It wasn't there in the first place to lose - just remember that a Megabyte isn't 1000 bytes, it's 1024, or 2 to the power of 10 and what SRX660 says follows on directly from that.
