Remember UFS reserves 8% of the space for root. Factor in that hdd manufacturers stick to 'proper' SI quantities (K = 1000, M = 1000000, G = 1000000000) rather than K = 2^10, M = 2^20, etc

So your 750GB is as far as software is concerned 698GB

Less the 8% reserved for root = 642GB

ext3 isn't supported on FreeBSD, you can use ext3 without journalling if you mount your volumes as ext2

I don't know where the missing 30GB have gone, the figures always added up for me.
