Default Seagate Offers Refunds on 6.2 Million Hard Drives

Seagate has agreed to settle a lawsuit that alleges that the company mislead customers by selling them hard disk drives with less capacity than the company advertised. The suit states that Seagate's use of the decimal definition of the storage capacity term "gigabyte" was misleading and inaccurate: whereby 1GB = 1 billion bytes. In actuality, 1GB = 1,073,741,824 bytes a difference of approximately 7% from Seagate's figures. Seagate is saying it will offer a cash refund or free backup and recovery software.
