Data Units Conversion

Welcome to our online extended data storage unit conversion calculator. It is the best place where you can make conversions between a great number of various data units like byte, kilobyte, megabyte, terabyte, petabyte, and many others, as well as make a number of conversions between data transfer rate units. We both calculate decimal and binary multiples of bytes, and our data storage unit converter is very easy to use. To start your specific conversion operation, please, select a unit below and go to the corresponding conversion page at our website.

Bytes (B)

Convert bytes.
Byte is the base unit of data.
1 byte = 8 bits.

Kilobytes (KB)

Convert kilobytes.
1 Kilobyte = 10001 bytes in SI
1 Kilobyte = 10241 = 210 bytes in binary

Megabytes (MB)

Convert megabytes.
1 Megabyte = 10002 bytes in SI
1 Megabyte = 10242 = 220 bytes in binary

Data Transfer Rate

Convert data transfer rate units.
Gbps, Mbps, kbps, MB/s, kB/s.

Gigabytes (GB)

Convert gigabytes.
1 Gigabyte = 10003 bytes in SI
1 gigabyte = 10243 = 230 bytes in binary

Terabytes (TB)

Convert terabytes.
1 Terabyte = 10004 bytes in SI
1 Terabyte = 10244 = 240 bytes in binary

Petabytes (PB)

Convert petabytes.
1 Petabyte = 10005 bytes in SI
1 Petabyte = 10245 = 250 bytes in binary

Megabytes and Gigabytes

How many bytes are in a megabyte?

There are 1,048,576 bytes in one megabyte in the binary system which computers use. But also, there are one million bytes in 1 MB according to the decimal system or base 10. In base 10, one megabyte is equivalent to 10*6 Bytes. On the other hand, in binary system or base 2, one megabyte is equal to 2*20 Bytes.

The unit symbol of Megabyte is MB; the unit symbol of Byte is B. And one megabyte is one million times bigger than a Byte.

Check this our online tool to convert Megabytes to Bytes easily.


What is the difference between MB and KB?

A kilobyte is a multiple of the unit for digital information with the prefix Kilo. A kilobyte consists of 1000 bytes, but in a computer system, a kilobyte refers to 1,024 bytes. Today a kilobyte contains little information, so storage capacities of computer hardware are mostly given in gigabytes and terabytes.

A megabyte is a measurement unit of information in computer storage and processing. One megabyte consists of 1,000,000 bytes in base 10. Originally one megabyte wasn't one million bytes but 1,048,576 bytes. That also means 1 MB is equal to 2*20 bytes or 1024*2 bytes.

You can check our user-friendly tool to convert Megabytes to Kilobytes quickly.

Hey R2,
Thanks so much for your ideas and for visiting our website!
We are going to improve gbmb.org, and definitely consider all your thoughts.
Best regards.

Hey,

I really like the site (straightforward desing, no BS, no ads) and would suggest you to deploy additional calculators like different RAID levels for storage, MTU for IP data transmission, and so on.
And also suggest you to provide a donation link ;-)

Keep up with the great job

1 Mbit = 1000 kbit?!? WTF?
How can u explain this?

Ravikant 2019-01-15 23:13:41

Nice job

I don't attainment calculation of Byte to bit please Help me

Yotta 2018-11-22 04:08:31

conversion in bits should be defined also.for helping purpose.
Thank you.
