# Which is bigger, MB, GB, or TB?

**A megabyte** is a unit of digital information commonly used in computer technology. One megabyte equals one million bytes of information or one thousand kilobytes of information.

**A Gigabyte** is mostly used in computer storage devices such as hard drive and USB flash drive etc. A gigabyte is equivalent to one billion bytes of information or one million kilobytes of information.

**A terabyte** is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information, equals to one million million bytes of information or one million megabytes of information.

As you can see, *a Terabyte is 1,000,000 times bigger than a Megabyte or 1000 times bigger than a Gigabyte. *

**Which is bigger TB or PB?**

* **1 Bit**: Has only one of two values either a 0 or 1.

* **1 Byte**: One of the smallest units of memory in computer technology. One byte consists of 8 bits.

* **1 Kilobyte**: Another measurement unit of digital information. There are a thousand bytes in one kilobyte.

* **1 Megabyte**: Mostly used for indicating the size of average MP3 songs or JPEG images. One megabyte equals one thousand kilobytes.

* **1 Gigabyte**: Commonly used for indicating the size of a movie. One gigabyte consists of one thousand megabytes.

* **1 Terabyte**: Mostly used for measuring the storage capacity of hard drives. One terabyte is equivalent to one thousand gigabytes.

* **1 Petabyte**: Commonly used for measuring the total data stored in server farms. One petabyte consists of one thousand terabytes.

Finally, we can say that *a Petabyte is one thousand times bigger than a Terabyte.*

Very Helpful and explained extremely well...tks so much for the info and clarification!

Thanks. Just what I wanted to know.

No to remember it.

For the time being, just knowing that a Gegbyte is bigger than a Megabyte.now A QUESTION....CAN I USE A FLASH DRIVE TO SAVE INFORMATION FROM AN OLD HARD DRIVE?

It was helpful

Thanks so much

Just to make it more confusing, in the computer world, a factor of 1,000 is actually 1,024. And a million, or 1,000,000, is actually 1,048,576. Why? Because computer components don't actually use decimal numbers, they are built around binary numbers, or powers of 2.

2 to the power of 10 = 1,024 "kilo"

2 to the power of 20 = 1,048,576 "mega"

2 to the power of 30 = 1,073,741,824 "giga"

2 to the power of 40 = 1,099,511,627,776 "tera"

Thanks a lot. Its clear now. Thanks to ur partner.

Thanks this was very helpfull

Distinguish between bytes and binary?

Well guys it may be confusing but it clearly states that a MB is equivalent to 1 million bytes of information and a GB is equivalent to 1 billion bytes of information .... So with that being said .... A GB is bigger.

FYI .... I was married to a computer geek .... lol.

Is Gb bigger or kb

itis nice but not clear MB orGB bigger brifly identify?

Nice!!...it was very useful
