So I just bought new 750 GB HDD SATA and I partitioned it and mkfs.ext3 on it and all these steps tell me 750GB. Well I then mkdir /mnt/storage and mount my new HDD there only to find it's only giving me 650GB of free space.

when I run DF is registers that I have 750 GB, CFDISK and FDISK both register 750GB so my question is where did the 100 GB go, any ideas ?

Thanks

Did you forget about ext2/3 5% default reserved space?
