There is, and if "K" is not even seen then you don't have as many "mb" as you think you have.

And when you are dealing with individual files and set of files, it would be more than a "bit" (no pun intended :) ridiculous to see the size in mb. If all you do is copy the contents of one drive to another, then of course mb is all you need. If on the other hand, you are doing "file/dir management", then bytes and Kbytes are better in most cases. If you have many mb or a gb in your directories, then most likely you could benefit from creating meaningful subdirectories.
