storage math?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
2.46TB total used up. 2.5TB is my game folder everything else is only 4.29GB so 2.46TB-429GB gives me how much space out of a 3TB drive but with only 2.72TB actual formatted capacity?

i was thinking maybe just buying a 1TB drive and throwing everything on it except my big game folder and just keep the current 3Tb drive as my game drive instead of having everything on the one 3TB drive but how much would i be left with on the 3TB drive like how much space would i have left? idk for some reason im on a brain funk

thanks

Nevermind... 2.04TB. Google can do storage math.

In binary world, a kilobyte is 1024 bytes, where in the marketing world of capacity they use 1 KB = 1000 bytes

3TB = 3,000,000,000,000 Byte / 1024 = 2,929,687,500 kilobytes

2,929,687,500 KB / 1024 = 2,861,022.95 megabytes

2,861,022.95 MB / 1024 = 2,793.97 gigabytes

2793.97 GB / 1024 = 2.73 terabytes
