Chapter 1 Getting Started 4 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) In addition, the capacity representation in Windows may be even smaller because some programs such as Recovery 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) Safety Precautions For your security and to prevent damage, please read the following safety instructions carefully.

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. Recovery Related 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.) Q3 This partition is called a Recovery Area and it includes a recovery image that comprises of the OS and application programs. A 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. 115 Q4 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 than 64 GB due to the small capacity. How can I restore a computer that does not have the Recovery program? A You can restore PC settings using the Windows-provided PC Recovery feature. Refer to the Restore Functionality item in the Help section for more details. Q&A Windows Related Q1 Chapter 5. Troubleshooting • Mouse: 1.

Regulatory Compliance Statements Health and safety information 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 contain an embedded 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.
