The gigabytes Windows reports are 7,3% bigger than the gigabytes the maker of the disk sells you. So there fit 7,3% less on the disk.
The gigabytes the maker of the disk sells you are 7,3% smaller than the gigabytes Windows reports. So they can sell you 7,3% more gigabytes.
But if you start counting the bytes from 1 for all 596 of Windows gigabytes, you'll end with byte 639.950.127.104. That's practically 640.000.000.000, isn't it. So it's a trifle more, approximately the 596.046448 Windows GB that's exactly 640 of the makers GB.
