How big is a 1 tb hd


A terabyte is a multiple of the unit byte for digital information. The prefix tera means 1012 in the International System of Units (SI), and therefore 1 terabyte is 1000000000000bytes, or 1 trillion (short scale) bytes, or 1000 gigabytes. 1 terabyte in binary prefixes is 0.9095 tebibytes, or 931.32 gibibytes. The unit symbol for the terabyte is TB or Tbyte.

How many kilobytes are in one terabyte?


1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte
1024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte
1024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte
1024 gigabytes = 1 terabyte

1024^4 = 1,099,511,627,776 (approximately 1 trillion bytes)

My HDD Dell 300GB 15K 3.5" SAS, i used with Windows Server 2008 Enterprise. The problem after installing the hdd total capacity its 279 How can manage this? Thank you


Hard drive manufacturers market drives in terms of decimal (base 10) capacity. In decimal notation, one megabyte (MB) is equal to 1,000,000 bytes, one gigabyte (GB) is equal to 1,000,000,000 bytes, and one terabyte (TB) is equal to 1,000,000,000,000 bytes.

Programs such as FDISK, system BIOS, Windows, and MacOS use the binary (base 2) numbering system. In the binary numbering system, one megabyte is equal to 1,048,576 bytes, one gigabyte is equal to 1,073,741,824 bytes, and one terabyte is equal to 1,099,511,627,776 bytes.

Simply put, decimal and binary translates to the same amount of storage capacity. Let's say you wanted to measure the distance from point A to point B. The distance from A to B is 1 kilometer or .621 miles. It is the same distance, but it is reported differently due to the measurement.

Capacity Calculation Formula

Decimal capacity / 1,048,576 = Binary MB capacity
Decimal capacity / 1,073,741,824 = Binary GB capacity
Decimal capacity / 1,099,511,627,776 = Decimal TB capacity

Example:
A 500 GB hard drive is approximately 500,000,000,000 bytes (500 x 1,000,000,000).

500,000,000,000 / 1,048,576 = 476,837 megabytes (MB) = 465 gigabytes (GB)

Hello the home page is here:

http://www.asrock.com/MB/overview.asp?cat=Download&Model=K8Upgrade-VM800

You are running windows xp and you need at least sevice pack 3
from windows update.

When installed the system should now be able to see large harddrives

FAT32 supports up to 2 TeraBytes.

Cannot support an internal hd larger than 1


Vista doesn't have a 1TB limit, however just make sure you have Service Pack 2 installed. (I don't believe SP3 is necessary). you can get it free from microsoft, just do a search on the internet. The motherboard is controlled by the BIOS. Go to your MB's manufacturers site and search by your model # to get the latest bios version and instructions on how to install it. Because it is an HP it's actually going to be easier to just go to hp.com and search for the bios file there.

My wd elements hard drive of 1 terabyte will not turn on


Hi,

Usually if this happens it's either a dead AC adapter or a failed circuit board inside. If you have nothing crucial on the drive take it back to the store you bought it from or contact Western Digital for warranty.

If you do have crucial files and don't want to loose them by simply warrantying the drive, take it to your local PC store and void your warranty by having the techs there move you hard drive into a new enclosure for testing. If it works in the new enclosure buy it and be on your way. If it doesn't your problems are more severe and will require some specialized assistance from a Data Recovery Pro. If this is the case ask the techs to place the HDD in a anti-static bag then reply to me with your Country, State, City and I will refer you to a nearby Pro who can access your files and save them for you.


Hope this helps FixYa,


Chris
