ok. look at size from a diff perspective.

in a virtual terminal, enter df -H, then df -h, followed by df -k.

are you sizes closer with "-k" ?

if in wonder, open second v-term, enter man df to get an understanding
of how block size and rounding cause interesting results.

same applies to du.

neither have a -b to see actual bytes, which i believe is because disk
usage is by blocks, not bytes.

peace out.
