So, I won't lose any of my stuff? And if so, what do I do, do i run diskmgmt.msc? Afer that's opened, then how do I do it exactly, b/c I don't see where it talks about formatting unallocated space.

diskmgmt.msc. Where it says unallocated spave, it might be greyed out with diagonal lines, right click on it, click format.

you have no unallocated space to format so you wont be able to do it. Do you have a lot of program files that have been uninstalled but still sitting there taking space?

No, not at all... but it still seems odd that there is that massive amount of space on my hdd that isn't anywhere to be found! Even when you highlight all the folders in C:, it only finds about half of it... while it still says its not there...
