**How is data storage calculated?**

Data capacity

- Calculating the number of documents that can be stored on a storage medium can be a straightforward process.
- Suppose there are 150 music files, each of which is approximately 6 megabytes in size, and a 1 gigabyte USB memory stick on which these files are to be stored.
- 150 x 6 megabytes = 900 megabytes.

### How much is a gigabyte of data?

1 billion bytes

A gigabyte (GB) — pronounced with two hard Gs — is a unit of data storage capacity that is roughly equivalent to 1 billion bytes. In decimal notation (base 10), a gigabyte is exactly 1 billion bytes. In binary notation (base 2), a gigabyte is equal to 230 bytes, or 1,073,741,824 bytes.

**How much is a KB of data?**

1,024 bytes

A kilobyte (KB) is 1,024 bytes, not one thousand bytes as might be expected, because computers use binary (base two) math, instead of a decimal (base ten) system.

**How much is a GB of data?**

approximately 1000 Megabytes

One Gigabyte (GB) is approximately 1000 Megabytes (MB). There is a whole spiel about how one GB is 1024 MB….What does 1 Gigabyte (GB) of data get you?
