    its a 250 gig harddrive, but here's what mine says
    201 GB free
    Games and Apps 25.9 GB
    Gamer Profiles 19 MB
    Demos 0 KB
    Videos 0 KB
    Themes 15 MB
    Gamer Pictures 824 KB
    Avatar Items 756 KB
    System Items 513 MB
    Music ...

    there's no music on this harddrive, but add all the memory up, then add that to my amount of free space, im missing over 20 gigs of memory, its unaccounted for, any suggestions or ideas? look at these for encouragement :boobs:

    generally all storage devices actually give you a fair amount less than what it is labeled as

    EX: 250gb = you get about 230gb use able space
    20gb = you get 13-15gb or so

    hope that helps ,.,your not missing anything ,,that's about normal from what I know ;)

    The system auto takes like 25gb from a 250gb harddrive i dont know why, but it you only pay for a 225 gb, and they claim you get 250gb, robbing bastards :LOL: my harddrive did the same.
