Confused

[ Edited ]

 I probably don't exactly know how these things work. I would appreciate some explanation on this: I recently purchased a factory sealed 128gb San Disk Ultra. When I popped it into my laptop, my unit is telling me that the available space is 119gb.I do know there is usually slightly less space than what is labeled, but I don't understand a 9gb difference. Can someone enlighten me? That's a lot of space to be missing in my opinion.

Re: Confused
