Why Do Computers Show The Wrong Capacity Of Our Storage Devices? by AmehHAS: 10:47am On Oct 24, 2019
Each i time I connect my hard drive or flash drive to my computer, the windows keep showing me a storage capacity lesser than the actual size.

For example, i'm having an hard disk of 1TB but on my computer it says 931GB.

I would really appreciate if anyone could explain to me why this usually occur.

Thanks
