Please take a look at the definitions of GB (gigabyte) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabyte drbd assumes: "1 gigabyte = 1024^3 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes" and: "18 gigabytes = 18 * 1024^3 bytes = 19,327,352,832 bytes" fdisk assumes: "1 gigabyte = 1,000,000,000 bytes" and shows the size in gigabytes and (for clarification) in bytes: > [root at shd1 ~]# fdisk -l /dev/drbd0 > Disk /dev/drbd0: 19.3 GB, 19327352832 bytes > Regards, > Alx HTH Matthias
