The usage % calculation is inaccurate?

Written by Richard. Posted in FAQs

The usage % calculation is bogus” – (variant of “The % is stalled at 0 [since the last upgrade or other conditions”)

Unit symbols used in computing are misleading, because a K is not 1000 but 2 power 10, which is 1024, so 1KB is 1024 bytes, 1MB is 1024 KB, and 1GB is 1024 MB. For example for someone with a 1GB quota and 112.04MB usage, the ratio is 112.04 MB/ 1024MB (10.94%), not 112.04MB/ 1000MB (11.2%).
