After running Scan disk, an error was reported stating there was a problem reporting the size of my HD. Now when I look at properties in my computer, my 60gb hd is reported as being a 57gb hd. syst. Asus A7V mb, 512mb crucial memory, Creative 52x cd, Plexwriter 16/10/40a os Win 98SE
On my system, the BIOS shows that I have a 76.9GB hard drive, which is listed as being 71.4GB under the properties of the drive in the GUI, due to the Base 8 numerical system. The chipset driver utility shows it as being 71GB <i>and</i> 76,869,918,720 bytes, which actually translates fairly close to the manufacturer's description of the drive, which was 75GB. That's actually kind of unusual. If you divide that large number by 1024, you'll see what I mean. It's all because there is 8 bits to a byte.
I figure that's close enough for working purposes.
Manufacturer's and resellers like to work in Base 10, because it makes the drive appear to be larger.
However, I'd like more specifics on the error message you received after running ScanDisk, Billy. Is the error consistent, or did it happen only the one time?
