For a drive advertised as 160GB, "149GB" is exactly what the OS will report.My brother used a Linux live cd with Gparted to format his hdd.
But it seems he done something wrong.
Now the HDD is showing 149.05 GB out of 160 GB.
What to do?
Thanks,but i he now pressed ''Create new partition table''.For a drive advertised as 160GB, "149GB" is exactly what the OS will report.
Nothing is wrong, no space is "lost".
Base 10 vs Base 2.
Human vs Computer.
