question

OK, another question.Why did my first drive had a formatted capacity of 119.24GB, the second drive ,even though the same drive, only 111.7GB?Could someone please explain that??For me it looks like the first one was actually 128GB, the second only 120GB (both formatted with NTFS, both a single partition)...
Asked by: Michael
It would appear that the second one not only has the 7% reserved space, as all of our SSD drives do, but the remainder is likely the recovery drive that is created by the OS. This is the computer's boot disk?

question

Does this drive work in a Laptop other than Mac as well?
Asked by: Michael
Thanks guys, I appreciate the help. Unfortunately I had to reinstall everything again cause the image wouldn't restore on this drive. From what it looks like I am gonna buy another one for my other laptop. This drive is blazing fast. Restarted in 1! minute. The main reason I bought this drive was the data throughput but I got a little concerned cause I missed the fact that these drives are specially made for Macs. Currently I am updating Win 10 and still have to install all my programs.
