+1 that's very nice answer! I like your idea to look in the source code. Could you please tell which version of the fdisk have you looked at?

It says [ 1.632660] sd 2:0:0:0: [sda] 234441648 512-byte logical blocks: (120 GB/111 GiB), i.e. the size is the same as fdisk shows. Could that be that there is some reserved space in the disk? If so what it is used for?

@LGB: Probably it makes sense to ask authors, but obviously if the numbers are different there must be some reason behind it, I don't believe that it is simply an error.

@LGB: thanks for the answer, I am aware of SI binary prefixes, however in my case the measurement unit is byte and bytes are the same in SI and in JEDEC terminology, therefore, it can't influence the answer, can it?

@ulidtko: I prefer dd, but cat is also fine, although not as clean solution as dd. By not clean I mean there is no way to say: please copy only 512 bytes, in this case ctrl+c is used. Thanks for the tips,I find them helpful.

@ulidtko: +1, good answer, I have done another way around: sudo cat /dev/sda > mydump, ctrl+c, sudo ghex mydump. Do you think makes sense?
