I have an HGST HUH721010ALN600 hdd. As you can see from its P/N, it is 10 TB (nominally) and 4Kn. So, typically a 10TB hdd is supposed to show as 9,536 GB — however mine shows as 9,314 GB (9,1 TiB). So somehow I'm missing some 222 GB here — any ideas as to what might have caused this? Thanks!

Sorry guys, methinks I let Seagate confuse me; as they mention Why does my hard drive report less capacity than indicated on the drive's label? | Seagate Support that 9,536 GB figure, but after re-thinking it I believe that 9.1 TiB is consistent with 10 TB. A happy New Year to all! :)
