quick question: 238 out of 250 gb?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, it's been a while since I posted. I have a quick question.


Santa was awesome enough to buy me a 250gb sata 2 hdd for Christmas. I'm sitting here while it formats. But it only recognizes a little more than 238gb of my drive.


Is this a reasonable amount of missing storage space to expect with a drive of this size? In the past the largest hdd i've had was 80gb, so I have no frame of reference.


Thanks in advance.
