Hello! I get new version pve-manager/8.0.3
And now i can't understand where free size getting.

My configuration have:
1) Raid1 960Gb
2) Raid6 48Tb
3) Raid5 7.2tb
This configuration on Hardware RAID HP P840
And i get mapping disk for virtualMachine - but i have a very big trouble:

I can't understand why i have not 48Tb in my virtual machine?

A "T" can mean TB or TiB.

48 TB = 48 * 1,000^4 bytes = 48,000,000,000,000 bytes = 43.66 * 1024^4 bytes = 43.66 TiB

So 48 TB and 43.66 TiB are the same size. Your first and third screenshot show TB. The second and forth screenshot show TiB. Keep in mind that Windows will write "TB" while actually meaning "TiB"...

So looks all normal and expected to me.
