1TB = 1024GB actually.

I think I had this argument with somebody a while ago, and apparently for hard drives 1TB does equal 1000GB!

I checked on one of the manufacturers websites (Seagate I think) and it does say so in the small print!

plus the built in software or whatever it is leaves you with less than what's shown on the box.............my opinion is that they should build them with a little extra memory to compensate so that you get exactly what you've paid for (1TB)

Sorry what's so cold about the deal. A terabyte external for under £70 seemed quite good to me?

Using 1000/1024;

1mb = 976.5 bytes,
1gb = 976.5mb / 953552 bytes
1tb = 976.5gb / 953552.25mb / 931143772 bytes.

So what Windows will recognise will be far less than 1tb. The same is true off all drives though.
