1TB shows as 903GB

Posted 27th Apr
So I upgraded my Gears 5 limited edition Xbox One X to 2TB (internally). The 1TB I have formatted and using as external shows as 903GB, is this correct?

I checked Disk Management in Windows 10 and there are no other partitions.

Hmm

930GB. Have you reversed the 0 and the 3?
Seems a bit small, I thought 1TB usually show as around 933GB? Perhaps I'm wrong!

Nope. 903gb is what it shows up as.

Yep around 931GB
Strange, it should be 931GiB (~1000GB) as you say, what's the model number of the drive?

The difference between that 30gb i doubt will make a large difference, just consoles being consoles for you
I don't know why they call them 1tb as soon as you format them you find it's not! 👎
Check using disk manager to see if there’s any unallocated space
I guess some will be used for the system like on a computer!
Reports 903GB in explorer and partition tool. However CrystalDiskInfo reports the drive as 971GB.
I think Microsoft have done something to knock off a little more, my friend just got a 2TB and Win 10 registers it as 1.81TB which tallies with your numbers, but is smaller than you'd have expected.

I've compared my drive (1TB) and only have 903 in Windows, and 2TB drives always only report as 1.81TB. I believe you do actually have the correct size

I got a HGST 1TB which shows as 931GB. This Seagate 1TB shows as 903GB. Something isn't right here.

I have a WD reporting 1TB as 903, trust me your fine.
I thought this was common knowledge... but have a read and you will find out.

Actually this is a better read: reddit.com/r/b…tb/

Hi my husband has the same Seagate and he said it shows as 903gb as well, messed up his plans for a Freenas raid as all the other disks reported 931gb. Very annoying.
