convert data storage
Calculations are based on binary prefix « base 2 » (soon we will include the SI prefix « base 10 »). A binary prefix is a unit prefix for multiples of units in data processing, data transmission, and digital information, notably the bit and the byte, to indicate multiplication by a power of 2 [more about binary prefix].
The storage capacity of a device is its characteristic that specifies the maximum amount of information it can contain. Units like kilobyte (KB), megabyte (MB) and gigabyte (GB) are commonly used to express the size of the data.
