Alright, I just bought a Dell Inspiron e1705. It said it came with a 60Gb Harddrive. I opened it and looked at the properties under My Computer and it said Available Space:49.7Gb and Free Space: 39.9. So I called Dell tech support and they said that 10Gb were partitioned off for the Backup files and operating system.
But I went into the Device manager and looked at the hard drive properties and it said it had 55.5 GB. I told this to the guy and he was like " yea, so 5GB is reserved for backup OS and the other 5GB is reserved for applications to run your OS."
I believe the 5GB backup OS but the other five... Is this true?? Feels like they are trying to rip me off. I need all your guy's expert advice. Thanks.
