    A good idea to add in the IEC vs SI prefixes.

    Windows, Linux and OS X all display data sizes differently.

    The values shown in Windows are actually in IEC sizes, so if you see a disk drive that shows 931 GB, it's actually 931 GiB, or 931 x 2³⁰ bytes, which is almost exactly one trillion bytes, or 1 TB. OS X uses the SI prefixes, so WYSIWYG: if you see a disk that has 1000 GB of storage, that's what it has. Linux (and BSD, for that matter) is also WYSIWYG but it uses the IEC prefixes, so files would be '5.5 MiB' or '2.7 GiB' rather than the '5.5 MB' or '2.7 GB' you see in Windows.

    Does two partitions on one disk affect Bitlocker in any way? Thought I read it somewhere but can't remember where..
