Warby35 Posted April 28, 2009 Posted April 28, 2009 Hi, I recently bought an external hard dive of 1Tb and after formatting it reduced to 931Gb, I was expecting a reduction, but 70Gb? I also have 4 internal HDD in my rig and I am aware of reduction after formatting, but why so much ? Does the OS really need 220Gb (over all) Also I would like to ask if it is possible to reduce the reserved space in any way? by using FAT32 or NTFS I will be buying a 320Gb external HDD for a friend to fill it with Documentaries as a present, how much space will I loose? Thanks, Warby Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
