I am running low on space in my /backups partition. I looked at the

So I thought 'cool', I didn't make it the full size, and
I have some left...ok...(I didn't remember what I'd done, its
been a while).
Run lvresize:
lvresize /dev/Backups/Backups -L +3.15G
Rounding up size to full physical extent 3.15 GB
Extending logical volume Backups to 10.91 TB
Logical volume Backups successfully resized
I suggest that you look at how the KBs are counted by the manufacturer
and then the OS. If I recall correctly, HD mfgrers use something like
~1458 bytes (or something) = 1Kb.

He's talking about PVs and LVs in LVM, so whatever the manufacturer does
is not relevant
