Why is this?
A 500GB HDD is actually about 465MB, the other 100GB or so is reserved for the OS, ect.,
What a rip off.
yeah, that's not surprising. it's like that with flash drives too. a 16gb usb flash drive is roughly about 14 and change once you stick it in your pc....i fell sorry for those ps5 owners who are promised an 800+ drive which will end up with less than that when they turn it on.
Its space taken up by the system files. The 1 terabyte Hard drive only has 780 gb
When something says a size, it's the size minus necessary room for the operating system, updates, screenshots and clips, other background things, etc.
They should not day it is 500gb
Technically it is.
Updates and stuff like that.
Operating system and reserved space for captures etc.
