One gigabyte (GB) is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes (one billion bytes), and one terabyte (TB) is equal to 1,000GB (one trillion bytes) when referring to storage capacity. Accessible capacity will vary from the stated capacity due to formatting and partitioning of the drive, a computers’ operating system, and other factors. 

2.

512e: Advanced Format drive with 512-byte logical sectors and 4K (4096-byte) physical sectors; 512n: Native 512-byte logical and physical sectors.
