About the Product Capacity Representation
Standard
© 2012 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. owns the copyright of this manual.
About the capacity representation of the storage
No part of this manual may be reproduced or transmitted in any
form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, without the
consent of Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd.
The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the manufacturer
is calculated assuming that 1KB=1,000 Bytes.
The information in this document is subject to change without
notice due to improving the performance of the product.
Samsung Electronics shall not be liable for any data loss. Please
take care to avoid losing any important data and backup your data
to prevent any such data loss.
Precautions for Operating System Support
If a problem occurs because of the reinstallation of other
operating systems(OS) or a previous version of a OS pre-installed
on this computer, or a software that does not support the OS, the
company will not provide technical support, a replacement or
refund, and if our service engineer visits you due to this problem,
a service charge will be applied.
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)
In addition, the capacity representation in Windows may be even
smaller because some programs such as Recovery Solution may
reside in a hidden area of the HDD.
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)

Cautions on Preventing Data Loss
(Hard Disk Management)
Take care not to damage the data on a hard disk drive.
•• A hard disk drive is so sensitive to external impact that an
external impact may cause loss of data on the surface of the
disk.
•• Take extra care, because moving the computer or an impact
on the computer when it is turned on may damage the data of
the hard disk drive.
•• The company is not liable for any loss of data on the hard disk
drive.
Chapter 1.
Getting Started
17
Causes that may damage the data of a hard disk drive and
the hard disk drive itself.
•• The data may be lost when an external impact is applied to the
disk while disassembling or assembling the computer.
•• The data may be lost when the computer is turned off or reset
by a power failure while the hard disk drive is operating.
•• The data may be lost and irrecoverable due to a computer virus
infection.
•• The data may be lost if the power is turned off while running a
program.
•• Moving or causing an impact to the computer while the hard
disk drive is operating, may cause files to be corrupted or bad
sectors on the hard disk.

is running, but also when you are unable to boot up into Windows.
Let’s learn how to use Samsung Recovery Solution.
If you turn your computer on for the first time, the Initial Status
Backup function is performed after registering Windows. This
function saves an image of the Initial Status of the C drive to a

Backup is only performed once immediately after the computer is
purchased.
After the computer has been restarted, the Partition Setup
screen appears.
The Partition Setup function is only available when the
computer is turned on for the first time and will not
be available afterwards. Once you have completed the
partitioning, it cannot be resized. Partition the disk carefully.
Optional functions such as Initial State Image, Initial Status Backup,
and Partitioning are only available in some models.
Partition Setup & Initial Status Backup
If you turn the power on for the first time, the Register
Windows screen appears. If you register Windows according
to the instructions on the screen, the computer will be
restarted.

Recovery Solution Representation (Optional)
What is a Recovery Area?
•• Samsung computers have an additional partition to recover
computers or save backup files.
(Only for models with the Samsung Recovery Solution.)
This partition is called a Recovery Area and it includes a recovery
image that comprises of the OS and application programs.
•• You can either double-click the Samsung Recovery Solution icon
on the desktop or press F4 while booting the computer to enter
the Recovery Area. Then you can back up the present computer
state or recover the computer from backed up images.
•• For deleting the Recovery Area, you need to use an additional
Recovery Area Removal Tool. After deleting the recovery area,
you can use the newly created partition for other uses, such as
for saving personal data. Be careful that once the recovery area is
deleted, the Samsung Recovery Solutions will not work anymore.
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.
This is due to the difference in capacity calculation and does
not mean the installed HDD is different from the product
specifications.
•• 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 Samsung Recovery Solution, the HDD capacity
representation in Windows may be smaller than the actual
capacity because Samsung Recovery Solution 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 Samsung Recovery Solution varies by models because
of the different size of applied programs.

(If fitted with 2.4G band or 5G band)
Low power, Radio LAN type devices (radio frequency (RF) wireless
communication devices), operating in the 2.4GHz/5GHz Band, may
be present (embedded) in your notebook system. The following
section is a general overview of considerations while operating a
wireless device.
Additional limitations, cautions, and concerns for specific countries
are listed in the specific country sections (or country group
sections). The wireless devices in your system are only qualified for
use in the countries identified by the Radio Approval Marks on the
system rating label. If the country you will be using the wireless
