Here's a stupid question but maths was never my strong point - I want to download a 213 Mb game demo but my hard drive is pretty near-full and tells me there's 2,084,409,344 bytes free space on it,which it also tells me is 1.94 GB
What's that in English? Is there enough space for the 213 Mb download or not?
And for future reference, is there a simple way to convert Mb's into bytes/ GB's?
PS - I also see things called kilobytes sometimes (groan), what are they?

BC has a Glossary to define many terms.

You might start here with byte.

And yes, you should have enough space for a 213 Mb download.

1000mb's are in a Gigabyte (GB)

Plenty of room.

Here's 2 examples using Google Calculator:

1.94 GB in MB

213 megabytes in gigabytes
