You're switching between MB and GB, are these all in GB?

Is there a reason you feel it's required, other than being bothered by the fact that they're
not equal?

Probably for most versions of cassandra (newer versions will attempt to choose JBOD disk based
on token ranges, which is designed to protect against some other edge case bugs where you
lose one disk and have to rebuild the whole node anyway). The real question is "why do you
care, really?" - it'll spill over to the other drive when it needs space, and if it's not
near capacity, it doesn't REALLY matter how full it is, right?
