Hi Petru, you are probably referring to the description text of your HDD, which size is stated in GB (decimal numeric system). Since Computer systems work in binary numeric system, there is a slight difference in the calculated size.

250GB = 232,831 GiB

As you can see, you are already using all the size of your HDD. No need to worry. Here's a small explination regarding the above mentioned: https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-Difference-between-GiB-and-GB
