You are at the store looking to purchase a Thumb Drive or an external hard drive but have no idea what MB, GB, or TB means and which one will hold the data you need. Hopefully the list below will help you in your decision.

  • Kilobyte (KB) = 1,000 bytes or 1/2 page of text
  • Megabyte (MB) = 1 million bytes or 500 pages
  • Gigabyte (GB) = 1 billion bytes or 500 songs
  • Terabyte (TB) = 1 trillion bytes or 200 high-def films
