Units powers --max-transfer

https://rclone.org/docs/

Options which use SIZE use kByte by default. However, a suffix of b for bytes, k for kBytes, M for MBytes, G for GBytes, T for TBytes and P for PBytes may be used.

is this units powers of 1024 or powers of 1000?

I just combined @asdffdsa posts here as he shared an answer:

the answer as per the docs is 1024.

"Data transfer volume will still be reported in bytes.
The rate is reported as a binary unit, not SI unit. So 1 Mbit/s equals 1,048,576 bits/s and not 1,000,000 bits/s."

"Options which use SIZE use kByte by default. However, a suffix of b for bytes, k for kBytes, M for MBytes, G for GBytes, T for TBytes and P for PBytes may be used. These are the binary units, e.g. 1, 210, 220, 2**30 respectively."
