[SOLVED] gdisk reports less disk space than cfdisk

I did a fresh install of Arch today and decided to try partitioning GPT style with gdisk.  I noticed that gdisk reported 10gb less disk space in total than cfdisk (149 vs 160gb respectively).  I haven't been able to find an answer as to why this would be.  Does anyone know?

Thanks!

counfound GB and GiB make me feel that I have 20G less but is fake

check GB vs GiB make these thipes of diferences

the best form is check in the same unit


Well, I suppose that this is somekind of signature, no?

nice picture that explains it]Binaryvdecimal.svg.png
Here you can see the difference is around 7 percent in the scale of gigabytes.
160*0,067=10,72

Yep.  The different measurements are the problem.  Thanks!
