Data precautions
Product capacity representation
Samsung Electronics shall not be liable for any data loss. Please
take care to avoid losing any important data and back up your
data to prevent any such data loss.
Storage capacity representation
The capacity of the storage device (HDD, SSD) of the manufacturer
is calculated assuming that 1 KB = 1,000 Bytes.
Operating system and software support
However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the storage
device capacity assuming that 1 KB = 1,024 Bytes. Therefore, the
available capacity of the HDD in Windows is smaller than the
actual capacity due to the difference in capacity calculation. For
example, for an 80 GB HDD, Windows calculates the capacity as
74.5 GB, (80x1,000x1,000x1,000) Bytes/(1,024x1,024x1,024) Bytes
= 74.505 GB.
If you change the product’s factory OS (Operating System) to
another OS or if you install software which is not supported by the
product’s original factory OS, you will not receive any technical
support, product exchange or refund, and a fee will be charged
when requesting a service.
Please use your computer with the original factory OS. If you
install an OS other than the factory OS, data may be deleted or the
computer may not start.
In addition, the capacity representation in Windows may be even
smaller because some programs, such as Samsung Recovery, may
reside in a hidden area of the HDD.
Memory capacity representation
The available memory capacity in Windows is less than the actual
capacity of memory. This is because some memory is required for
regular system operations.
For example, for 1 GB (= 1,024 MB) memory installed, Windows
may report the capacity as 1,022 MB or less.

Troubleshooting
Why is the capacity representation of the hard disk
drive (HDD) in Windows different from the product
specifications?
What is a recovery image?
This refers to the operating system, drivers, and software that are
converted to a data image. It is required to recover the computer
and is embedded in the computer’s HDD. However, this is not
provided for storage devices where the capacity is less than 64 GB,
due to their small capacities.
The capacity of the storage device (HDD or SSD) of the
manufacturer is calculated assuming that 1 KB = 1,000 Bytes.
However, the operating system (Windows) calculates the storage
device capacity assuming that 1 KB = 1,024 Bytes, and therefore
the capacity representation of the HDD in Windows is smaller than
the actual capacity. The capacity representation in Windows may
be smaller than the actual capacity because some applications
occupy a certain area of the HDD outside of Windows.
How can I restore a computer that does not have the
Samsung Recovery application?
Restore the computer with the recovery function provided by
Windows. Refer to the Recover Functionality item in the help for
more details.
For models with the Samsung Recovery application, the HDD
capacity representation in Windows may be smaller than the
actual capacity because the Samsung Recovery application
uses a hidden area of 5–20 GB 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 the Samsung Recovery
application varies by model.
