Start following IEEE 1541 agreed naming of bytes (#532)
* Start following IEEE 1541 agreed naming of bytes This standard exists to prevent any confusion about the actual number of bytes. It has been agreed on by experts and is being used more widespead these day. Let's start properly naming the number of bytes, which is absolutely important in disk encryption software. * Update LanguageStrings.cpp * Update UserInterface.cpp * kibibyte instead of kilobyte * kibibyte instead of kilobyte * MiB instead of MB * undo accidental deletions Odd indeed that two random lines were deleted in a previous commit. Probably happened when using a keyboard shortcut while editing the file. This fixes the issue. * Mb to Mib
