I have recently installed a OCZ Vertex Plus R2 VTXPLR2-25SAT2-120GB 2.5 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) 120 GB SSD. I figured I would have about 110 to 112 GB knowing that hdd/ssd and other mass storage device manufactures use the 1000x1000x1000 vs OS using the math of 1024x1024x1024 to calc a gig. then take into account the format overhead and so on.
So am I just lucky that my SSD is showing 115 GB? shown as drive J:. is my math wrong in that if I divide 120,000,000,000 by 1024/1024/1024 that it should be 111.76 GB?
I should note that windows 7 is on it and NTFS formatted.
I am not complaining about the "extra gigs" I am just wanting to understand the variance in what I expected to what I got. Any answers?
Edit: I updated the drive info OCZ Vertex Plus R2 VTXPLR2-25SAT2-120GB 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
