Does this help? This is a rough guide, for example it is 1024bytes to a kb etc....:
  • 1 Bit = Binary Digit
  • 8 Bits = 1 Byte
  • 1000 Bytes = 1 Kilobyte
  • 1000 Kilobytes = 1 Megabyte
  • 1000 Megabytes = 1 Gigabyte
  • 1000 Gigabytes = 1 Terabyte
  • 1000 Terabytes = 1 Petabyte
  • 1000 Petabytes = 1 Exabyte -
  • 1000 Exabytes = 1 Zettabyte
  • 1000 Zettabyte = 1 Yottabyte
  • 1000 Yottabyte = 1 Brontobyte

I've just been notified that this one doesn't actually exitst in the computer dictionary:

1000 Yottabyte = 1 Brontobyte

....so sorry for any confusion there.

David
