Actully...any HDD manufacturing company counts 1000MB as 1 GB.....dat means just reduce remaining 24 MB out of 1024MB from ur 327680MB....dat means reduce 24 MB from 1024MB ...like this reduce it from entire 320GB.....we dont get all 320GB HDD....just notice anybody's HDD space & calculate it....u wont get 20GB, if im not wrong....this is according to me...u must ask it to any professional guy!!!
yeh sandeep ur right
it is 1 GB = 1,000,000,000 NOT 1073741824 (1024x1024x1024)
