    I also believe that there is a 8mb cache that wont show up after you install windows so if you are missing a few megs then thats your answer.

    I am not 100% sure, but after screwing with windows partions from my Linux disc, I think the slightly smaller space is used for the swap file. The swap file is a part of the HD that is used to store temporary info for processing, I am also think thats what actual file processing goes through.
