Mebibyte - megabyte, that's why.

>>51602093
SI != IEC

Also, the file system itself take up some space.

How do you not know about this?
Every drive you buy is advertised as 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes. In reality, 1 GB=1024*1024*1024 bytes
= 1073741824 bytes

So crunch those numbers and after 8,000GB you're left with a decent bit less than the advertised amount.

OP, don't waist your time. Just send it back and get a replacement. Otherwise your not getting your money's worth.
>>
>>51602222
but that's megabytes -> mebibytes which is different from terabytes -> tebibytes
>>
>>51602295
I know, but that's the only way I could get the 7.63 figure OP has
>>
>>51602305
maybe gparted is being really lazy with its conversion and only using the formula for megabytes to mebibytes no matter what the byte unit is? idk
>>
>>51602093
There's no problem to fix, manufacturers and os's calculate storage space differently.
>>
>>51602247

THIS. thread over.
>>
>>51602093
Open my computer, right click the drive, rename, 8 terabyte drive
>>
>>51602093
hard disks usually say on the box something like
1GB = 1 billion bytes, so this 8000GB drive is only 8 billion bytes (7.630 TB measured to 1024 instead of 1000)
>>
>>51603025
incorrect
>>
>>51603053
incorrect
>>
>>51602093
I think only on OSX will it show up as 8tb.
>>
>>51603136
i beg you are pardon?
>>
>>51603164
You may not have my pardon.
>>
>>51603053
correct

>1GB = 1 billion bytes
>so this 8000GB drive is only 8 billion bytes
>8000 == 8
False.
>>
>>51602093
HDD as marketed as 1000*1000*1000*1000 = 1 tb
Computers list them as 1024* 1024*1024*1024 = 1tb

so 8 tb is 8 000 000 000 000 bytes, which shows up as 7450,58 gigabytes on your machine.

If you got 7.630 tb then it's a bit larget than 8 000 000 000 000 bytes.
>>
Drives are measured in gigabytes by manufacturers. Computers work in gibibytes, which are slightly bigger. It,s normal for drives to show up as slightly less the gigabyte value.
>>
Seems gparted is fucking up the unit conversions, it should be either showing 8TB, or 7.276TiB

>>51602331
this.
