for god sake. its just the old difference between binary and metric. pull up calculator type in 250,000,000,000 divide by 1,073,741,824 and have a look at what you get. about 232.8gb so roughly 233gb.
edit: therefore there is no missing space. your hdd's size as reported by manufacturer is in metric in which a GB= 1,000,000,000 bytes, a true binary GiB is 1,073,741,824 bytes
