Default How Do I Specify The Size Of A Drive Partition?

How would I specify a partition of 20 GB in 6 digits?

I don't think you can. What is it you're trying to do? Usually it allows as many digits as possible.

I think that you're wanting to know the MB equivalent, which is only 5 digits, not six. The MB you need to enter is 20480

Thank you. I suffer with number blindness, like dyslexia, though not diagnosed. I managed to make this work with your answer. Cheers.
