A 500GB HDD is actually about 465MB, the other 100GB or so is reserved for the OS, ect.,

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.
