Hi I have just installed OMV. Through SSH I created a partition on a external HD following this instruction https://www.tecmint.com/fdisk-…ge-linux-disk-partitions/ (writtten in 2015)
The result is as follows:
As you can see there is a gap of around 10 GiB for space counted in bytes vs space counted in GiB. During the procedure it said the default cylinder to start was 63. So I started searching. I found this information:

https://superuser.com/question…sector-2048-instead-of-63 (written in 2011)

This is all old information and I don't whether it relates to the 'loss' of 10 Gib. The instruction i followed did not mention a default cylinder start at 63. So the question is what do I need to do to get the 10 Gib back? Is it at all possible? Should I use a different disk partionner / formatting program? Maybe ignore the default cylinder and set it to start at a cylinder 1?
BTW Previously the disk was formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and indicated 160 Gib. A second disk I have which is exactly the same and still formatted Mac OS Extended (Journaled) still indicates 160 GiB.
