Just want to know I got different blocked URLs stats at Google Webmaster Tools. I blocked entire site for revamp and latest builds implementation. Here are different stats

Under Health tab > Blocked URls > 2,580

Under Health tab > Index Status>Advanced > 1,784

What's the difference between above stats?

In these two cases, blocked URLs refer to blocked URLs by your robots.txt file.

However, if you have different numbers can mean that Google takes time to update data. In a perfect case, these two numbers should be the same.
