How much is 2TB of data storage?

2 terabyte = 2,000 gigabyte. So 2 TB of storage equals 2,000 GB of data, but how much is 2TB of data in more practical terms?

Updated over a week ago

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. 2TB of data storage on Internxt’s network is almost exactly the same as 2TB of Google Drive storage or 2TB 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 2TB of storage?

With 2 TB of data, you can store an average of 200,000 photos with today's smartphones, and roughly 500,000 documents can fit on a 2TB drive. 2TB or 1TB 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.

Do you need to know how much cloud storage you have left before hitting your Internxt limit, or are you curious about how many gigabytes are in a terabyte?

Internxt's Byte Converter is a secure tool that allows you to convert terabytes to gigabytes and more. MB to KB, GB to TB, or MB to GB–any combination you can think of can be converted as quickly as you can type in the amount.
