Could anyone tell me, is it always possible to buy bigger HDD and get smaller storage? like I’ve bought a Samsung HDD 120GB installed and everything and now I only have 111GB storage what could be the problem???

Can someone tell me is that normal or there is something wrong with it??

It's the way the manufacturers define the amount of space on the drive. For them, 1000 bytes = 1Kb, 1000Kb = 1Mb, and so forth. In Windows, 1024 bytes = 1Kb, etc.

So yes, it's normal, and there's nothing wrong with your drive.

Thnx man... my HDD is Samsung is it any good.... which are the best HDD brands?

The more popular brands are Western Digital, Seagate and Maxtor.

Are you happy with your drive? ;)
