The answer is IDEMA formula, as described in the IDEMA Standard LBA 1-03 specification (specs available here, or direct PDF download). LBA counts = (97,696,368) + (1,953,504 * (Advertised Capacity in GBytes – 50)) LBA counts = (97,696,368) + (1,953,504 * (500 – 50)) LBA counts = 976,773,168 Capacity in Bytes = 512 Bytes * LBA counts Capacity in Bytes = ...

You're right, it's not the GiB vs. GB issue. If you check several 500GB drives, you'll find they're all* slightly different. In most cases, it won't be exactly 500 000 000 000 Bytes. Yours has 500 107 862 016 Bytes, another might be 500 107 946 218... That's the actual usable space the manufacturer ended up with given the precise disk layout and it varies ...

Because @Puqeko showed more interest in my comment. I thought I would provide more information. This is not an answer, I'm afraid, but it will provide a bit more information on the error I experienced, which I think is the same: "Initial" drive state: I found a thumb drive in my house. It was fairly old; I checked its contents, and found it empty. ...

There are a few things you can do. One is to use an archival grade media such as Verbatim UltraLife, which is what I use for important local backups. Test results I have seen show they may resist degradation under optimal conditions substantially longer than an econ disc. The improvement seems to be mostly in the oxidative resistance of the reflective ...

Just in case anyone wonders why this happens in the first place. I believe I have reproduced the special conditions (I'm sure there are other variations of these conditions that could cause the same result though): I started a very large number of very large Windows updates (a bunch of language packs and service packs etc.), while I also had a large number ...

Open registry editor and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Drive. On the right you should see a key named TileInfo. This is the key that defines what information will be shown next to the drive in Explorer when View is set to Tiles. From the screenshot you provided it looks like yours may be empty or non-existent (since it isn't displaying ...

You'll have to turn on Visual Styles on the server, which is an involved process, because, well, it is a server. It's called Desktop Experience in Windows Server 2008, to get to it, go to Control Panel, and then, under Programs, click Turn Windows Features on or off.‌ Hit "Add Features" in the Features Summary section, then select the Desktop Experience ...

My guess is you rsynced without -HS, so that hardlinked files in the original are not hardlinked in the copy, and sparse files in the original are not sparse in the copy. You can verify the first hypothesis doing something like diff -u <(find /run/media/jonash/T1/ -type -f links +1) <(find /run/media/jonash/T2/ -type f -links +1) Finding sparse ...
