Depending on the filesystem type, which we don't know, the filesystem
may not use all available space because of its structure, i.e. because
you don't get an integral number of cylinder groups out of the available
space. This is less obvious with large (i.e. multi-Gigabyte)
Please do not top-post and remove all fluff in your answers.
