Question about Samsung HM250HI 250 GB SATA Hard Drive
This hard drive needs to be repartitioned and formatted first then you should see actual amount. You can do this when selecting the drive in windows 7 installation
Make sure the drive is listed in the BIOS matching your serial, model number, etc incase you purchased this from ebay or second hand.

What I would do in this situation is a complete format of this drive to where it is totally blank. Active Kill Disk is what I use, the software will allow you to do a complete format. You will also need to download utorrent free torrent software Click Here This is what you need to download torrent files.
It is obvious that the drive is filled up somewhere. And you need to do a complete format. Bringing it back to its 250 gig capacity. Then install Windows back on it again. Making sure it is set to Master the settings on the front of the hard drive that show which jumper setting for the drive set it to Master. The master drive is common for Windows installs.
Now the other possibility is that the hard drive is bad or corrupted. This is possible. If that is the case then you will have to replace the drive if it will not take after a complete format. Lets hope this is not the case. Please do not forget to vote for me, thanks for using FixYa! John
