You are not missing any space. Hard drive manufacturers use a definition of 1GB = 1000,000,000 bytes and 1MB = 1,000,000 whereas Windows uses 1GB = 1,073,741,824 bytes and 1MB = 1,048,576. This is the cause of the discrepancy.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
