Question about SimpleTech 320GB SimpleDrive External by Fabrik 320 GB USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I bought a simpletech 320 gb hard drive, when i look at the properties, it shows only 298 gb free space. Why is that?
It has to do with the way computers count. Computers count in binary where we count in decimal.
Hard drive makers list there drives capacities in the decimal format, where windows lists it in it's binary format.
Wikipedia has a good explanation.
Also, the drive may have some preinstalled software on it that could be taking up a bit of space (it's usually not much).
