Hey guys.. i just picked my self up a WD 80 gig 8 meg cache.. and when i put it in my pc.. it only reads 76 or so gigs... is this normal or what? i dont have too much experience with Hard Drives so any information would be gladly accepted!
I'm not really a hd expert, but I think that there are several disks in a hd. And each disk can only hold so much data...so 80gb hd may take four 20gb disks, but each of the disks don't equal 20, probably like 19gb.
Same thing with 40gb hd's, they don't equal exactly 40gb.
