- Why is GiB used insteed of GB [closed] 2 answers
I just used boot and nuke to wipe my hard drive and reinstall my OS systems. When selecting the hard drive I noticed that there were only 931gb free in my hard drive.
Is this normal? It sees like a strange number as I though terabyte drives held 1024gb.
Is some of the hard drive hidden? Are there any programs that can check?
Thanks in advanced for any help with this!
df -h returns the following:
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on udev 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev tmpfs 786M 18M 768M 3% /run /dev/sda5 437G 5.7G 409G 2% / tmpfs 3.9G 31M 3.9G 1% /dev/shm tmpfs 5.0M 4.0K 5.0M 1% /run/lock tmpfs 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /sys/fs/cgroup tmpfs 786M 20K 786M 1% /run/user/124 /home/*/.Private 437G 5.7G 409G 2% /home/* tmpfs 786M 2.0M 784M 1% /run/user/1000
lsblk returns the following:
NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT sda 8:0 0 931.5G 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 0 500M 0 part ├─sda2 8:2 0 478.8G 0 part ├─sda3 8:3 0 496M 0 part ├─sda4 8:4 0 1K 0 part ├─sda5 8:5 0 443.9G 0 part / └─sda6 8:6 0 7.9G 0 part └─cryptswap1 253:0 0 7.9G 0 crypt [SWAP] sr0 11:0 1 1024M 0 rom
So total size is 931.51GB. That is a very strange number.
