Read the fine print on some of the hard drive boxes and they say "company xyz calculates 1 gig as 1000meg".

Have a 600 page comp book by David Dick here.

1KB = 1024 characters
1MB = 1048576 characters
1GB = 1073741824 characters

1073741824 / 1048576 = 1024

So Im agreeing with mr Dick and ggrot ;)

Well spotted Brett- I wonder if thats an infringement of the fair trading act or an international equivalent

Also worth noting whether your site is being charged for the likes of 3000MB or 3GB sort of thing

I wondered where my other 240kb went. Marketers "took" it.
