There are three common file size definitions used in the IT world, and which one you use will vary your understanding of file size reporting:
- Binary prefixes using SI (International System of Units) symbols: 1KB=1024B bytes;
- Decimal prefixes using SI (International System of Units) symbols: 1KB=1000 bytes;
- IEC binary prefixes: 1KiB=1024B.
By default, FileZilla/FileZilla Pro displays file sizes in bytes. If you’d like to have file sizes displayed differently:
- In the main menu, click on Edit > Settings….
- Select Interface > Filesize format from the menu on the left.
- Select an option from the Size formatting option group.
- To have FileZilla/FileZilla Pro use a thousands separator standard to your local settings, tick the
Use thousands separator checkbox.
- If you choose to have file size displayed in anything other than bytes, select the number of decimal places FileZilla/FileZilla Pro should use.
- Click on OK.
