When talking about data storage, people often refer to terabytes. That said, most individual files are only a few megabytes in size, at most a couple of gigabytes for very large files.
Regardless of which laptop or brand of computer you use or if you use an iPhone, Samsung, Xiaomi, or whatever, a TB, GB, or MB of storage is roughly equal across all devices. 1TB of data storage on Internxt’s network is almost exactly the same as 1TB of Google Drive storage or 1TB from another cloud storage provider.
How many gigabytes or megabytes are in a terabyte?
Put simply, 1 terabyte (TB) equals 1,000 gigabytes (GB) or 1,000,000 megabytes (MB). In the case of 2TB, 2 terabytes (TB) equals 2,000 gigabytes (GB) or 2,000,000 megabytes (MB).
How many photos or files can you fit in 1TB of storage?
With 1 TB of data, you can store an average of 100,000 photos with today's smartphones, and roughly 250,000 documents can fit on a 1TB drive. 1TB or 2TB of data storage is more than enough digital storage for most people.
How can I get more storage space for my computer or mobile device?
Of course, you can always buy more physical storage and install it yourself, but only a few devices allow upgrades or have the extra physical space necessary to add more drive storage.
If your phone or computer does, in fact, run out of space, you should look into storing your data in a cloud storage service.
By backing up your photos and data to the cloud, you will free up extra space from your device while making that information instantly accessible to you anywhere. Cloud storage is extremely safe and affordable, plus you can always purchase more if you reach your data limit.
