Please see the following post: ShareCenter FAQ > DNS ShareCenter - Total Usable Storage Space

The total usable space for a HDD formatted as a Standard Volume should be roughly 93% of the marketed size. A 4TB HDD should have roughly ~3.72 TB of Space, with a loss of approximately 280 GB.  Again these are rough estimates, and I define the math in the post I referenced earlier.

when formatting the drive dns-320l reserves a 537MB Swap partition and two 1074MB hidden  system partitions (each with the same data, for redundancy) on each drive, everything else as javalawyer sais its just the regular difference between declared size and formatted size.
