I am pretty sure I have seen a youtube of a guy installing an external 500GB or 750GB drive as his internal by using a SATA to USB adapter. The PS3 recognized it as an internal drive and formated it fine. I've also read that the FAT 32 system has a theoretical limit of 2TB. The question I have is why the Harddrives lose so much space when they are formated. I recently installed a 250GB HDD that when formated shrank to 205GB. I realize that 250 is actually 232 when you count in units of 1028 but where did the other 27GB go?

The OS reserves a percentage of the drive for it's own use.

A percentage, and not a fixed amount? Why is that, and what exactly does it use it for?
