ext4 vs ntfs partition space used
 
I have a I TB wester Digital external hardisk. It was initially ntfs but yesterday I formatted it to ext4. One thing I noticed that now free space is around 916 GB while in ntfs its around 931 GB.

So does ext4 really takes more partition space than ntfs.

Ext4 uses some disk space for the journal (see: journaling file system).
