Is it normal for a "160"gb hdd to have a little over 130gb free of 149gb?

Thanks for any help.

Yes because the system uses up some of the space.

Then shouldn't I have more then 130gb free? It's a completely reformatted "empty" drive. Was the 160gb never truly 160gbs? Thanks again.

The 149 GB is the real size and then the PS3 uses 10 % of the remaining space for cache memory.

Yeah, I though they'd take ten, but I thought that would leave me with at least 140, so I feel cheated out of at least 10gigs. Oh well.
