I have a frcently built system with a 120gig HDD.
It is a Fujitsu.
It only registers as 114gig.
What has happened to the other 6gig?

as the old saying goes, if only i had a pound everytime this was asked : )))

its all down to what constitutes a megabyte. hard drive makers say its 1000 bytes, as its easier to to divide but in reality, 1024 bytes make a megabyte.

so you haven't really lost any space.
