I'm just taking a flyer, here, but they may actually be the same, and if
you compare them byte-by-byte (say, use LC to open and read the files and
them compare them), you may find they are the same.  The difference may
well be due to differences in block sizes and positions with the hard
drive.  Especially as you get into bigger drives, block sizes tend to grow.

On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
   and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
