How much actual disk space after formatting?
Posted on 2004-03-30
I am trying to figure out how much disk space is available after formatting, is there a set formula I can use to figure this out.
example: In Windows although I have a 250GB hard drive, Windows only reports 232GB
How much actual usable space will be on a hard drive array of 1.7TB?
(using a scsi drive cage 14 drives 146.8GB each - what will I have as usable disk space? How do I calculate to include the hot swappable spare and parity of the raid5?
