Convert bytes (B) to kilobytes (KB) to megabytes (MB) to gigabytes (GB) to Terabytes (TB)
Technical note: These terms are those used most commonly and is the binary system, and you can be comfortable using it. The binary system is a base 2 system in which a bit is a binary digit, either a 1 or a 0, and a byte equals 8 bits. There is also a decimal (or "denary") system, in which a kilobyte = 1,000 bytes instead of 1024 bytes, and they say it is a kibibyte that equals 1024 bytes. They also use the terms gibibytes (GiB), Mebibytes (MiB), and Tebibytes (TiB). This is the system of the International System of Units (SI). The binary system is a base 2 system used by operating system makers such as Microsoft and Apple and also is used on CD-ROMs and flash drives; the decimal system is a base 10 system, used by makers of hard drives and DVDs. There also is an octal number system (base 8) and a hexadecimal system which is a base 16 system. The latter two are used by computer programmers, and are popular because they make it convenient to abbreviate binary numbers which can get to be quite long.
