Are you familiar with disk partitioning tools?  You need to look into the partitioning and see where the remainder of the disk has gone.  I'm not an expert on the subject, but as long as you use a partitioning tool that will allow you to increase the partition size without losing any data, you should be able to utilize the remainder of the disk space by either creating new partitions or extending the one that has shrunken mysteriously.  Its not difficult, but whenever doing this kind of thing make sure you back up all data first, just in case something weird happens in the process.  Remember that Windows limits you to 4 primary partitions when creating new partitions.
