And you are correct in saying 80,000,000,000bytes as the size, as hdd manufactorers use the standard 1000 someing = 1 kilo something, eg:
1000m = 1km
1000g = 1kg
Most ISP's do the same with there download usage amounts, I just copied this from my ISP's usge site
For all purposes 1 Gigabyte (GB) = 1,000 Megabytes (MB).
