There are two main reasons why the storage on the frame you bought is different than the advertised storage.
Reason #1 - Computer Industry Standards
The computer storage industry reports storage sizes differently than what a computer uses to calculate actual storage sizes on the device.
When storage is advertised it is advertised using base 10. However, when a computer calculates storage it uses a base of 1024. The difference is a device will report about 70mb less storage for every 1gb.
Reason #2 - OS Size and Reserve Space
PhotoSpring uses about 5gb of space. 1gb is for working space to process videos and files after download. Another 2-5gb is used to the device operating system.
The chart below summarizes the difference between advertised storage and what you will find on the device.
