Storage The zeros and ones in the input devices, output devices and process devices are in electronic form and are lost when the computer is turned off. To preserve the zeros and ones when the computer is turned off they are sent to storage devices The computer stores the zeros and ones in byte size chunks

Bits to Bytes A zero or a one = Bit 8 Bits = Byte Computers store things in byte size chunks 1024 Bytes = Kilobyte = 1024 Bytes 1024 Kilobytes = Megabyte = 1,048,576 Bytes 1024 Megabytes = Gigabyte = 1,073,741,824 Bytes 1024 Gigabytes = Terabyte = 1,099,511,627,776 Bytes Etc Keeps going by a factor of 1024 1024 because computer is a base 2 creature
