About the Product Capacity Representation
Standard
About the capacity representation of the storage
The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the manufacturer
is calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes.
However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the storage
device capacity assuming that 1KB=1,024 Bytes, and therefore the
capacity representation of the HDD in Windows is smaller than the
actual capacity due to the difference in capacity calculation.
(E.g. For a 80GB HDD, Windows represents the capacity as 74.5GB,
80x1,000x1,000x1,000 byte/(1,024x1,024x1,024)byte = 74.505GB)
Windows may also display a smaller hard disk capacity due
to some hidden functions or software programs such as the
Recovery program.
About Memory Capacity Representation
The memory capacity reported in Windows is less than the actual
capacity of memory.
This is because BIOS or a video adapter uses a portion of memory
or claims it for further use.
(E.g. For 1GB(=1,024MB) memory installed, Windows may report
the capacity as 1,022MB or less)

Troubleshooting
The capacity representation in Windows may be smaller
than the actual capacity because some programs occupy a
certain area of the HDD outside of Windows.
For models with Recovery, the HDD capacity representation
in Windows may be smaller than the actual capacity because
Recovery uses a hidden area of about 5~20GB of the HDD
to save the recovery image, and that hidden area is not
counted towards the total size available to Windows.
The size of Recovery varies by models because of the
different size of applied programs.

Q1
What is a Recovery Area?
A
Samsung computers have an additional partition to recover
computers or save backup files. (Only for models with the
Recovery.)
This partition is called a Recovery Area and it includes a
recovery image that comprises of the OS and application
programs.
Q2
A
The capacity representation of the hard disk
drive(HDD) in Windows is different from the product
specifications.
The capacity of the storage device (HDD) of the
manufacturer is calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes.
However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the
storage device capacity assuming that 1KB=1,024 Bytes,
and therefore the capacity representation of the HDD in
Windows is smaller than the actual capacity.

Q3
A
What is a recovery image?
This refers to the computer status (including operating
system, specific driver(s), software(s), etc.) which is converted
to a data image. It is required to recover your computer and
is embedded in the computer's hard disk. However, this is
not provided for storage devices where the capacity is less

Exposure to Radio Frequency (RF) Signals
Certification Information (SAR)
Chapter 6
Appendix
127
SAR level of the device while operating can be well below the
maximum value. This is because the device is designed to operate
at multiple power levels so as to use only the power required to
reach the network. In general, the closer you are to a wireless base
station antenna, the lower the power output.
This product can be embedded a radio transmitter and receiver.
It is designed and manufactured not to exceed the exposure
limits for radio frequency (RF) energy set by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) of the U.S. government. These
FCC exposure limits are derived from the recommendations of two
expert organizations, the National Council on Radiation Protection
and Measurement (NCRP) and the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE). In both cases, the recommendations
were developed by scientific and engineering experts drawn from
industry, government, and academia after extensive reviews of the
scientific literature related to the biological effects of RF energy.
Before a new model is available for sale to the public, it must
be tested and certified to the FCC that it does not exceed the
exposure limit established by the FCC. Tests for each model are
performed in positions and locations (e.g. at the bottom on the
body) as required by the FCC.
The exposure limit set by the FCC for wireless devices employs a
unit of measurement known as the Specific Absorption Rate (SAR).
The SAR is a measure of the rate of absorption of RF energy by the
human body expressed in units of watts per kilogram (W/kg). The
FCC requires wireless devices to comply with a safety limit of 1.6
watts per kilogram (1.6 W/kg). The FCC exposure limit incorporates
a substantial margin of safety to give additional protection to the
public and to account for any variations in measurements.
SAR information on this and other model can be viewed on-line
at http://www.fcc.gov/oet/ea/fccid/. This site uses this product FCC
ID number on the outside of the product. Sometimes it may be
necessary to remove the battery pack to find the number. Once
you have the FCC ID number for a particular product, follow the
instructions on the website and it should provide values for typical
or maximum SAR for a particular product.
SAR tests are conducted using standard operating positions
accepted by the FCC with the wireless transmitting at its highest

Local Restriction of 802.11b/802.11g Radio Usage
[Note to integrator: The following statements on local restrictions
must be published in all end-user documentation provided with
the system or product incorporating the wireless product.]
Due to the fact that the frequencies used by 802.11b/802.11g
wireless LAN devices may not yet be harmonized in all
countries, 802.11b/802.11g products are designed for use
only in specific countries or regions, and are not allowed
to be operated in countries or regions other than those of
designated use.
As a user of these products, you are responsible for ensuring
that the products are used only in the countries or regions
for which they were intended and for verifying that they
are configured with the correct selection of frequency and
channel for the country or region of use. Any deviation from
permissible settings and restrictions in the country or region
of use could be an infringement of local law and may be
punished as such.

Economic Area. However, authorization for use is further restricted
in particular countries or regions within countries, as follows:
France
General
2.400 - 2.454 GHz (channels 1 to 7) for outdoor use.
European standards dictate maximum radiated transmit power
of 100 mW effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) and the

For Guadeloupe, Martinique, St Pierre et Miquelon, Mayotte:
The low band 5.15 - 5.35 GHz is for indoor use only.
For Reunion, Guyane:
Belgium
2.400 - 2.4835 GHz for indoor use.
The product may be used outdoors, but for outdoor transmissions
over a distance of 300m or more, a license from the BIPT is
required.
2.420 - 2.4835 GHz for outdoor use (channels 5 to 13)
This restriction should be indicated in the manual as follows:
Dans le cas d’une utilisation privée, à l’extérieur d’un bâtiment, audessus d’un espace public, aucun enregistrement n’est nécessaire
pour une distance de moins de 300m. Pour une distance

Regulatory Compliance Statements
European Telecommunication Information
(for products fitted with EU-approved modems)
Marking by the symbol
indicates compliance of this equipment
to the Radio and Telecom Terminal Equipment Directive 1999/5/
EC. Such marking is indicative that this equipment meets or
exceeds the following technical standards:
CTR 21 - Attachment requirements for pan-European approval for
connection to the analogue Public Switched Telephone Networks
(PSTNs) of TE (excluding TE supporting voice telephony services) in
which network addressing, if provided, is by means of Dual Tone
Multi-Frequency (DTMF) signaling.
Although this equipment can use either loop disconnect
(pulse) or DTMF (tone) signaling, only the performance of
the DTMF signaling is subject to regulatory requirements for
correct operation.
It is therefore strongly recommended that the equipment
is set to use DTMF signaling for access to public or private
emergency services. DTMF signaling also provides faster call
setup.
Chapter 6
Appendix
138
However, due to differences between the individual PSTNs
provided in different countries, the approval does not, of itself,
give an unconditional assurance of successful operation on every
PSTN termination point. In the event of problems, you should
contact manufacturer Technical Support.
RTC CAUTION
CAUTION : Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended
by the manufacturer. Discard used batteries according to the
Manufacturer’s instruction.
Attention: Danger d’explosion si les piles sont mal palcées.
Remplacez les piles usagées uniquement par des piles de type
identique ou équivalent recommandees par is fabriquant. Otez les
piles usagées selon les instructions du fabriquant.
