and 0.13992GB. Be sure most readers of this forum understand your point, no need to proceed any further.

Still, personally and professionally (data taking), I have much better use of the *exact* number of bytes and wouldn't like to lose this information. You can always go from bytes to KB or MB (see above) but you cannot go back from 143.28MB to 150,234,567.
