    Using HD Advance 2.0, I formatted a 120G Maxtor and a 120G Seagate. The maxtor formatted with 113G free, and the Seagate formatted with 111G free. Has anyone seen this? What size did your HD format as? Anyone know why the difference? Thanks.

    um, when they say 120g, they mean 120 billion bytes. a gig is actually 1024mb, so 120g (as they say), is actually about 111 gigabytes.
