disk space reporting

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Help' started by kamran iranpour, Oct 4, 2007.

  1. Hi,

    Could some one give me a clue as to what is wrong with the following math,

    I have 100GB disk space on disk C, and going through all the directories
    and files including the allocated space for swap and hyberfile I should
    have used around 25GB of the above and would expect to see roughly the
    difference between the above numbers. And yet the system reports 48GB
    left on the disk. What happens to the rest ?

    thanks in advance,

    The above math is wrong. The rest of your disk size is 7. HTH

    Your 100 GB is by manufacturer's standards 100,000,000,000 bytes
    Windows will report: 93,1 GB (1 GB equals 1.073.741.824 bytes (1024^3))
    So you "lose" 6.9 GB
