g> i have 80 gb samsung hard disk while partioning it shows only 75 gb .
80 GB is 75 GiB. Windows shows you size in GiBs erroneously saying it's in
GB, while disk manufacturers show size in GB.
so, Windows is incorrect here, it uses names that is NOT according to
international standards, such as IEC 60027-2.
1 GiB = 1,073,741,824 bytes ~= 1.073 GB
75 GiB = 80.475 GB
additionally, some size is allocated for filesystem structures.
