My new 1tb internal hard drive shows it is a 698gb(what my previous one was) on Windows 7. What is the deal?

Yes, I removed it completely. It shows just the new 1tb hard drive, but shows it as a 698gb hard drive.

Fixed it by doing this:
Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management and extend the partition to include that lost space.
