Method To Convert Bytes To GB Formula Using Any Tool

The memory in a computer is stored in semiconductor devices called as flip-flops. Each flip-flop stores one bit of memory. When 8 bits are grouped together, we get a byte. A byte is the smallest completely usable unit of computer memory. For the sake of simplicity, large memory sizes are assigned with a power of 210 as a kilobyte, megabyte, and gigabyte.

Hence by that rule, one gigabyte is equal to 210 x 210 x 210 bytes. You can use this relation to calculate the file size.

If you want to convert byte to gigabyte (GB) to calculate the size of a very large file, try visiting the online calculator Convert Byte to Gigabyte. 1 gigabyte (1 GB) is equivalent to 1,073,741,824 bytes. Byte is the main non-SI unit for computer data storage. 1 byte is equivalent to 9.31322574615E-10 gigabyte. In computer science, a byte is the basic unit of measurement of information storage.

It is also a unit of memory addressing in most computer architectures consisting of 8 bits. Because computer memory comes in base two instead of 10, a huge portion of the computer and software industry use binary estimates of the SI-prefixed quantities. On the other hand, manufacturers of computer storage devices prefer the SI values.

This is the reason why a normal hard drive advertised with “100 GB” decimal storage capacity actually contains not more than 93 GB of 8-bit (power of 2) addressable storage. A gigabyte or GB, on the other hand, is a unit of information or computer storage which means approximately 1.07 billion bytes. This is the definition normally used for computer memory and file sizes.
