KB and KiB are both valid systems (with the former being multiples of 1000 and the latter multiples of 1024), and there's no completely valid reason to chose one over the other in computer use. In fact, Windows uses KiB but calls it KB while Macintosh uses KB in newer OSs, but in older ones calls KIB KB.
And so to reduce confusion, Microsoft displays the values in bytes.
