Hi
I have installed a new hard drive to my FreeBSD system. Hard drive is 200gb but
when I fdisk and disklabel the output of "df -h" is something like that:
/dev/ad1s1e 183G 2.0K 169G 0% /disk2
Here as you can see I can only use 169GB of it. Bios has seen my harddrive as 190GB also dmesg output is like that:
ad1: 190782MB <WDC WD2000JB-00DUA3> [387621/16/63] at ata0-slave UDMA100
My question is what happened to 190-169 gb or maybe after some filesystem information reservation what happened to 183-169 gb?
By the way I have used default newfs parameters -b 16384 -f 2048. I don't know if that helps...
REGARDS...

Wd uses an old system to measure drive capicity. For a wd drive 200gb= 200,000,000,000 bytes, but to any person fimilar with binary and decimal numbers there 200gb=186.26gb~2^37.54bytes. You also have to have a file system, with takes up more room with more space to map.
