GigaByte ( GB for short) and TerraByte ( TB for short) are used for large amounts of files on electronic storage media. 1024 GigaByte are converted to 1,048,576 MegaByte. This means that 1 Terabyte is 1,024 GigaBytes. In turn, 1 GB is only 0.001 TB.

All information is without guarantee

The conversion from gigabytes (GB) to terabytes (TB) is a fairly simple process and is based on the binary system used in computer technology.

One terabyte is equal to 1024 gigabytes. This number results from the power of 2, as the digital storage units are based on the binary system. In the binary system, all units are powers of 2.

So to convert gigabytes to terabytes, divide the number of gigabytes by 1024. For example, if you have 2048 gigabytes and want to know how many terabytes that is, divide 2048 by 1024. The result would be 2 terabytes.

It is important to note that sometimes a conversion based on 1000 is used instead of 1024, especially in contexts such as data transfer rates or when manufacturers specify the storage capacity of hard disks. In these cases, 1 terabyte would be equal to 1000 gigabytes. However, in strictly technical and traditional computer use, the 1024 basis is used.
