I just bought a new external hard drive (WD Elements - 1 TB). In a PC with Windows 7, I formatted it by Right-clicking the drive > Format (Quick Format - NTFS) before using it and, and then checked out its Properties.
I noticed that it already has 118 MiB of its disk space already used, despite being newly formatted and no files transferred to it.
Is the disk space occupied by the disk overhead, metadata, etc. correlated to the total disk space capacity of an NTFS-formatted hard drive?
If yes, how is it computed? (How much disk space will be 'used' by default on a brand new, newly formatted hard drive, given its disk space capacity and if it is formatted to use NTFS?)
