The storage capacity of a storage device (as reported by many operating systems) may be different than the capacity that is listed on its label.
Data storage products (including USB flash drives, memory cards, and hard drives) include the total capacity, at an unformatted level, that is stated on the product or the product packaging. For example, a 128GB USB flash drive has a total capacity of 128,000,000,000 bytes at the unformatted level (where 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes).
Definitions of a Megabyte:
Storage device manufacturers define 1 GB as 1,000,000,000 bytes.
Operating systems typically define 1 GB as 1,073,741,824 bytes.
Note: Some capacity is used for formatting and other functions and thus not available for data storage. A portion of the total capacity is used to store certain functions including optimizations of the memory that support performance and endurance and therefore is not available for user storage.
