  1. That is not a problem, that is how windows formats the drive. The hard drive thinks 1GB is 1024MB and windows thinks 1GB is 1000MB. (one way or the other). My 640GB shows up as 596GB.
  2. Drive manufacturers consider 1,000,000,000byte to be 1TB when in all reality 1TB is 1024 x 1024 x 1024 byte.
  3. Thnx to All...
