Byte Sizes up to Yottabyte

Byte Sizes up to Yottabyte

From: Joe Crown joecr@netzero.net

FAT 16 has a 2 GB per partition limit on all operating systems except for Windows NT where the limit goes up to 4 GB this is accomplished by increasing the cluster size to 64 k. FAT 32 it limited to 2 TB except for when used with Windows 2000 in which case it is limited to 4 TB. NTFS 1.0 through 5.0 is limited to 15 exabytes.

Here is a listing of byte sizes up to the yottabyte.

  • a yottabyte is a 1024 zettabytes
  • a zettabyte is a 1024 exabytes
  • an exabyte is a 1024 petabytes
  • a petabyte is a 1024 terabytes
  • a terabyte is a 1024 gigabytes
  • a gigabyte is a 1024 megabytes
  • a megabyte is a 1024 kilobytes
  • a kilobyte is a 1024 bytes
  • a byte is 8 bits
  • a bit is set to either a 1 or a 0
