Do hard drives lose capacity over time?
I recently reconfigured and reformatted a pair of samsung F3 1TB (which has always been in windows 7 software raid). However, when I tried to recreate the raid, I realized that one hard drive reports 931.39 capacity while the other reports 931.51.
Looking at S.M.A.R.T., the value for reallocated sector count is still at 200 and didn't drop a bit for either hard drive. Am I missing something? Why is this happening?
Perhaps one has a 100MB boot partition, which got rounded to the .12 GB difference you're seeing?
