Hello I upgraded my Krazie's Ndure soft modded xbox to a 250GB HDD. I change to Nkpatcher .67 and I moved all the space to the F drive. I recently noticed that Evox (my main dash) says that the F partition has 209GB free, but when I go into XBMC or UnleashedX it says 199GB free. Evox says it has 10 more GB then XBMC does.

Why is evox showing more space then XBMC or UnleashedX?

Hard drive manufaturers sell drives in Gigabytes (1 billion bytes), but operating systems and the like measure capacities in Gibibytes (2 ^ 30 bytes). XBMC and Evox are probably doing that part differently.

Because Evox is calculating space wrong. Remember, 1K=1024 bytes, but Evox is using 1000.

Since 1K=1024 bytes, 1 Meg= 1024*1024=1,048,576 bytes, not 1,000,000
1 Gig = 1024*1024*1024=1,073,741,824, not 1,000,000,000.
