Converting bits and terabytes
Some commonly asked questions are included below, as well as a reference chart. When making manual conversions, you can use the converter at the top of this page to check your answer.
How many terabytes are there in 1 bit?
There are 1.25E-13 terabytes in 1 bit. To convert from bits to terabytes, divide your figure by 8000000000000 .
How many bits are there in 1 terabyte?
There are 8000000000000 bits in 1 terabyte. To convert from terabytes to bits, multiply your figure by 8000000000000 .
In the chart below, figures are rounded to a maximum of 4 decimal places (6 with smaller numbers) to give approximations.
What is a bit?
You might not be aware that the term "bit" is actually a shorter version of the phrase binary digit. A bit is the simplest unit of data storage and its value can represent a 0 or a 1 at any give time. Every other form of computing measurement is based off of the humble (and yet very important) bit.
What is a terabyte?
The terabyte is the current heavyweight of all data storage. The terabyte represents 1,000^4 bytes. In other words, it is the equivalent of one TRILLION bytes of information. This can also be expressed in more technical terms as 1,024^4 (1,099,511,627,776) bytes. Thanks to advances in storage and processing power, the terabyte is now commonly seen in external hard drives and other systems which provide massive amounts of memory space. As the world of computing continues to advance, it will be interesting to see how far these massive figures will rise!
