Why don't we get full space that is specified on drives?

Asked by prasad (3826 points ) October 29th, 2009

My external drive is of 160 GB, but it shows only 148 GB of available space. And also, some space is lost in hard drives and ram. Why is it so?

During formatting, while creating partitions, they leave out some space. Is this got something to do?
