Humax misreporting HDD size

My recently replaced T2 is now reporting my hard drive as 1405 Gb in size. I have turned it on and off at the mains but still reports the wrong size. The custom firmware shows it as the 1Tb that it is.

Could they have slipped a 1.5Tb drive in, formatted as 1Tb, because 1Tb drives are now difficult to source?

I think we all know that 1 terabyte is 1,000,000,000,000 bytes, BH! :disagree: (Fourth power of 1000 bytes.)

You are thinking of 1 tebibyte. (Fourth power of 1024 bytes.)
We don't all know, no. Just because some new terms have been coined to cut the (deliberate) confusion between computer terminology (powers of 2) and what they can get away with (powers of 10), does not stop me using "terabyte" and meaning 2^40. Said Humpty Dumpty.
