I wanted to create 2 partitions that would show exactly 1TB and exactly 500 GB in windows 7. I partitioned and formatted the drive using win 7 disk manager, using values : 1048576 for 1 tb and 512 000 for 500 GB, however, in My Computer the sizes shown are 0.99 TB and 499 GB. So what are the correct values please ?
To clear things, the drive size is 2 terra, and the goal is to get 3 partitions, and for them to show as exacly 1 TB, 500 GB, and aprox 383 (the third and last) in My Computer.
P.S. I noticed that in the Disk management utility of windows which i used to partition the sizes are shown as 1024 GB and 500 GB, but in My Computer they are shown as 0.99 TB and 499 GB. Cool huh ?
