Actually Coreece was clostest in the description. Formatting really has nothing to do with it. Everything is based on a blank slate. Formatting files use the available HDD space.
500,105,216,000 bytes worth of space on a drive. But because of the binary system 1-2-4-8-16-32-64-128-256-512-1024.
1 KB is actually 1,024 bytes.
1 MB = 1,024 KB
1 GB = 1,024 GB
So everything is based on this number
You must divide 500,105,216,000 by 1024 = 488,384,000 KB
488,384,000 KB /1024 = 476,937.5 MB
476,937.5 MB / 1024 = 465.76 GB
465.76 GB; I believe this is the number that registers when you install the harddrive. And that is why.
Formatting has nothing to do with it.
