Understanding hard disk drive space
The hard disk drive on the Hewlett-Packard and
Compaq computers with the Microsoft®
Windows operating system preinstalled may
appear to be smaller than the size stated in the
product specifications, in the documentation, or
on the box. Hard disk drives are described and
advertised by manufacturers in terms of decimal
(base 10) capacity. Microsoft Windows and
other programs, such as FDISK, use the binary
(base 2) numbering system.
In decimal notation, one megabyte (MB) is
equal to 1,000,000 bytes, and one gigabyte
(GB) is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes. In the
binary numbering system, one megabyte is
equal to 1,048,576 bytes, and one gigabyte is
equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes. Because of the
different measuring systems, you may see a
difference between the size reported by
Microsoft Windows and the size advertised. The
storage capacity of the hard disk drive is as
