These are my specs. when I go to view the basic info it shows the six gigs but only shows 5 of it usable. How do I free up that last gig....I found somewhere (do not remember where that it was being reserved for hardware.......is there anyway to free it up? I know its only a gig but that's a whole gig lol.
