Your request is too vage. The capacity of a hard drive is measured in bits, byte, kilobytes, megabytes, gigabytes, terabytes.

1 byte = 8 bits.
1 kilobyte = 1024 bytes.
1 megabyte = 1024 kilobytes.
1 gigabyte = 1024 megabytes.
1 terabyte = 1024 gigabytes.

Make since??
The bit is only a 1 or 0. a combination of 8 bits represent a charactor.
Example: The letter A is represnted in bits as : 01000010
The letter a is represented in bits as : 01100010
