Re: what causes difference in usage total?

Are both measuring in base 2 or base 10?

I.e. 1024 vs 1000

In base 2, 1GB (Can be noted as GB or GiB) is 1024 MB, 1048576 KB
In base 10, 1GB is 1000 MB, 1000000 KB
That's almost a 5% difference.

both are measured in base 2 so that does not account for the difference.

Under tomato my time is set for EST timezone, and I suppose videotron will do likewise. So that cannot be the cause either.
