Is that all the partition you saw?

Possibilities:
1) You were using Linux. Clean hard drive, and reformat it.
2) There was a recovery partition that you formatted. I don't know what you'll do about that.
3) Data corruption? It's possible...

I know theres a small system reserve on drives. So, your full OS partition wont be 100% of the drive capacity.

Running the utility below will help to see if the drive is damaged or not. If it does end up having issues be sure to enter the serial number on the Western Digital site to see if it is still in warranty, they are usually very good at sending you a new drive pretty quick.
