The screenshot from PRTG is in Megabytes. The Windows Screenshot is Gigabytes. Just set PRTG to show GB as well, then it should be around 906 as well

Please try changing the "Channel Unit Configuration" in the "Settings".

Could it be you are not checking the "Channel Unit Configuration"?

This is not the Channel Unit Configuration I'm afraid. Please go into the Settings of the parent device, there you will find the correct setting.
