Why Storage Devices Have Less Space Than Advertised

Have you ever wondered why computers always indicate that your hard drive or memory card has a smaller storage capacity than what’s advertised on the box (and the card itself)? No, it’s not because you got a defective card, it’s not because your card came preloaded with a bunch of unwanted files (your hard drives, maybe), and it’s not because the manufacturers are cheating you by skimping out on the storage space (well, not directly, at least). The reason has to do with math and marketing.

Humans think about numbers in base 10, the decimal numeral system, because we have 10 fingers and 10 toes. That’s why the parts of numbers are called “digits” — just like the parts of our hands and feet.

Computers, on the other hand, think in base 2, the binary numeral system.

Herein lies the root of the issue. The “brilliant” marketing gurus at data storage companies decided early on that all their products should be marketed in the decimal system, since that’s what consumers understand.

Therefore, one megabyte on their products is equal to 1,000,000 bytes, and one gigabyte is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes. To a computer, however, a megabyte is 1,048,576 bytes and a gigabyte is 1,073,741,824 bytes.

Thus, for each gigabyte advertised in base 10, you’re actually receiving about 70 megabytes less than a gigabyte in base 2.

Take a close look at the box your hard drive or memory card came in, and you’ll notice asterisks. Look for the fine print, and you’ll see a disclaimer stating that the figures are stated in base 10:


Memory cards aren’t as bad as hard drives when it comes to advertised versus “actual” (it seems that the makers try to match up the two figures): when you buy a card for your camera, you’ll probably getting something close to what it says on the box.

Buy a large external hard drive, however, and you’ll likely see a much bigger difference between what the box tells you and what your computer reports.

Protect Your Computer from viruses and worms

Now-a-days many computer users are facing problems regarding viruses and worms, These worms may be very harmful as well as computer speed consuming too. This is not in the case of internet users only many computers which are not connected to internet have also such viruses and malwares installed in them, Now what is the source of such viruses and woms? Many of you don’t know that even the usb drive may have some virus in it which can replicate itself at its own. Yes, I am talking about autorun.inf viruses, Today i am going to discuss ways to make your pc secure from such viruses.

How these Autorun.inf worms and viruses propagate?

By default, Windows system enables an Auto Play function. When you plug in a USB disk or CD, Windows loads and executes a file named AutoRun.ini, which is the list of predefined tasks and in these predefined tasks running of viral programs is included, These programs play with registry files and as a result task manager get disabled and much more can happen. The virus reproduces itself into the disk and modifies this file, so that when the file is executed, the virus is able to reside into the system.

Installing a good Anti-Virus software:

If you will  install a good antivirus software which will update at daily basis then its difficult that your computer get infected, as antivirus will automatically locate and kill the processes of autorun.inf file located in usb disk and which is trying to execute miscellaneous programs, I have already posted a good antivirus software along with its cracks, Try it, Its Avast Internet Security , Also you can try USB Disk Security, But often we have to plugin USB in other computers where antivirus is not present then follow the below methods.

Immunizing USB from Viruses and Worms – Manual Method:

1) Open a command prompt by click Start -> Run. Type cmd and hit the Enter key.

2) In the command prompt, create a directory in the root directory of the USB drive (By Pointing cmd to the  USB disk VIA its drive letter like if its G:/ then type G:/ and hit enter) with command:

mkdir AutoRun.ini

3) Move into this new directory with command:

cd AutoRun.ini

4) Create a new directory with command:

mkdir a…//

5) Exit the command prompt window with command:


Remove the USB-Disk from the computer and now its immune. And whenever you will plug it into a infected computer the USB won’t get infected.

How to Password Protect Folders in Windows without using any Software

We use computers almost everyday and we have these files that we want to make private for some reason. There are a lot of third party software out there that can password protect your folder or files. However, these are not ideal and it might leave a mess (eg. annoying toolbars, etc…) or even harm your computer. In this article, I will show a neat method on how to password protect your files.

NOTE: If you’re a beginner, just make sure that you know what you are doing.


Create Your Password Protected Folder

Before you get started you need to create a folder that will house your password protected folder, this is just an ordinary folder and can be located anywhere and named anything.

Navigate into your newly created folder and create a new Text Document. This can easily be done from the context menu.

Open the document, now paste the following code into the contents of the document:

title Folder Private 
if NOT EXIST Private goto MDLOCKER 
echo Are you sure you want to lock the folder(Y/N) 
set/p "cho=>" 
if %cho%==Y goto LOCK 
if %cho%==y goto LOCK 
if %cho%==n goto END 
if %cho%==N goto END 
echo Invalid choice. 
ren Private "LOCKER" 
attrib +h +s "LOCKER" 
echo Folder locked 
goto End 
echo Enter password to unlock folder 
set/p "pass=>" 
attrib -h -s "LOCKER" 
ren "LOCKER" Private 
echo Folder Unlocked successfully 
goto End 
echo Invalid password 
goto end 
md Private 
echo Private created successfully 
goto End 

Change the PASSWORD_GOES_HERE text to the password you want to set. Now go ahead and save the file as locker.bat.

Once the file is saved as a batch file you can delete the original text file.

Now run your batch file by double clicking on it–the first time you run it, it will create a folder called Private. This is where you can store all your secret things. When you have finished adding all your stuff to the Private folder, run locker.bat again.

This time you will be asked if you sure that you want to lock the folder, press the “Y” key and hit enter to lock your folder.

You will see that your Private folder quickly disappears.

If you run the script yet again, you will prompted for a password.

If you enter the same password as you set in the script the Private folder will reappear if you enter the incorrect password the script will just Terminate.


Most people don’t know how to show system files, but anybody who has some experience will probably be able to quickly figure it out in the Folder Options.

It’s definitely not a really secure way to hide your files, but it is fun.

Can still sync with Facebook–first sync you need to uninstall facebook app. Once first sync is done you can reinstall Facebook app and game will sync properly until you sign out of Facebook in Candy Crush, then you will have to repeat, uninstalling Facebook to get sync to work properly. Pain in the butt but this is heavily modded and be happy sync works at all

Rooted users–backup original with titanium or myback up, will need to restore data later. Uninstall original Candy Crush, install CCU, play first game and close, do not try to sync Facebook yet. Now restore Candy Crush data only from backup you made earlier, reboot phone, open game, let sync or sign into Facebook and profit.

Non rooted users–uninstall original Candy Crush and Facebook app, install CCU and log into Facebook through CCU3 only. Will not work if Facebook is installed, it will tell you CCU can’t connect. After the first sync you can install Facebook app, it will still sync until you sign out in game.
