500GB Storage medium. ~480GB free.


This is because when you make silicon transistors that are that small there is a probability that you will have bad sectors. this is why there are intel chips with different numbers of cores as option. They produce all the chips with the same cores but some come out with faulty cores even if they did everything perfectly.

With an intel chip it is an expensive enough item to disclose the amount of breakage on the packaging. With usbs they are so cheap that they don't do this.

Also usbs can often have hidden sectors that are used by the operating system of the usb. Some usbs that sell as 16 gigs actually have closer to 32 gigs.
Sounds like a DOJ coverup. Worth looking into. Sector microanalysis perhaps? What is a nano technology
This. A lot of the limitations on various pieces of technology are artificial and enforced through small hard/firmware modifications in the factory. This is either because of flaws in the fabrication processes (ie quad core CPU is defective so just cut two cores off and package as dual core) or because it's cheaper to buy parts in bulk and just make one thing without the need for different tooling or components (ie firmware limitations on a 32GB flash drive to make it 16GB).

I can't even say I'm really mad about it. The alternative is more waste which is shit for the environment.
I just bought 10 USD 512 GB USB sticks, awesomeness.
how much whos the connect

>>608 Make that two. We have you surrounded!
>>613 Faggot the reason they made them a thing was because they break easier. It's a planned obsolesce thing. It's more waste. You can't trust these things for cold storage like other storage devices. Bakas.
>>615 *obsolescence
>>615 Did you mean to reply to me? I did not contradict your claim, I only said I was a treehuggin ecofaggot.

1TB/1000GB is roughly always 931GiB GiBibytes is different to GiGaBytes. Calculation is to multiply it always to 0.931 so a 512GB drive would show up as 476GB in windows because they're dumb and use the INCORRECT notation of GB instead of GiB. Winfags BTFO
