new sata drive - missing capacity??

  fredzepp 12:35 07 Feb 05

I just fitted a Maxtor 6Y120M0 sata hard drive to my Mesh Matrix A64 PC; formatted as NTFS, single partition using the Maxtor MaxBlast 3 software. The property inspector tells me the free space is 122.8 gb but then only 114 gb is available to use. Where did the extra 8.8 gb go? Is this normal for a secondary drive used only for storage? Any advice is much appreciated.
