Just to elaborate on CJL's correct response (it goes beyond windows), the computers measure sizes in powers of 2 for exabmple a gigabyte is 2^30 or not the more common meanining of giga (1000000000). It leads to a descrepincy, which is why there is a disclaimer on every hard drive sold nowadays (formatting may lead to smaller size displayed), after a lawsuit was filed against all the drive makers.

Oh okay, I knew about the descrepincy, I just haven't dealt with drives this large before so the difference kind of threw me. Using 2^30 it calculates perfect.
