Yoda once made a comment concerning this. "Fear leads to ignorance, ignorance leads to bias, and bias... bias leads to the fanboy side". This tends to pop up in many gaming forums, and strangely enough a fictional character is wise beyond his years.
How did they advertise wrong. They advertised you get a 60gig hard drive, not that you would have 60 gigs of free space.If what spirit says is true that 13 Gig has gone missing to items such as the main operating system ends up taking 13 gig up, this seems slightly unfair to advertise this product as 60gig which really misleads people into thinking they have 60 gig for themselves.
60gb = 64424509440 bytes
60gb (hdd) = 60000000000 bytes = 55.8 GB
Like every system that includes a hard drive, part of it is partitioned. Sony purposefully holds onto 10% of that hard drive space for operating files. It means if you screw up your space, you can reformat and not effect the OS. This is normal for many machines with an OS installed. Every HD allots a certian hidden partition for recovery.
This isnt just with a PS3... ipods, xbox, they all have this to varying degrees.
Its under system info.However this has majorly gone off topic, all he really asked was how can he can check how much hard drive space he has left, can anyone actually answer this for him?
People really need to try and learn the basics of the Firmware. Its not that hard. They should either look in the manual or just get to know it before they play.
