Low hard drive capacity: 167gb


I have Lenovo x1 carbon type 3444 (first gen) and after formatting it I've noticed its hard drive capacity is quite weird. I know this model comes with 128gb or 256gb hard drives, and mine is showing 167gb.



I know that the avilable memory effectivly translates to less than what advertised beacuse of the approximation that 1024~1k, so I would expect that my storage will be around 237gb.


I tried looking in the disk managment if I forgot to allocate partions, but it looks like I use all the avilable memory:Capture2.PNG



 I've never added or removed any of the original laptop hardware. 

Do you have any explanation to this unsual hard drive capacity?


Thanks in advance!

Some X1C 1st gen models came with a "180G SSD":

120GB, 180GB and 240GB are also available sizes on that model.  It looks like you have a 180GB one.
