    this is what is says in disk utility? is this OK even after reformatting brand new MBP, that it still has 2 files, and used space is 447MB?

    Thanks

    Can you see what those files are? AFAIK, formatting takes little space and there is always some system files as well (RAM backed up to HD?).

    Yes !

    Those are system HD files , they need to be there.

    Even if you bought a brand new HD and formated it , most always will will find 2 files , same as a USB flash drive.
