About this tool:

The Byte Converter is an online conversion tool that converts one digital data storage unit into another. It converts between bits/bytes/kilobytes/megabytes/gigabytes and supports many other conversions.

The file size is defined as

  • How much data or content does a file contain.
  • How much space is a file occupied in a device?

That space is measured in some data storage unit.

What is a bit?

A bit is defined as the smallest measuring unit for computer data storage. It's the basic building block and contains a single binary value 0 or 1.

1 bit = 0.125 bytes

1 byte = 8 bits

However, in majority systems, the bytes are used as a measuring unit to quantify the computer data.

1 KB (kilobytes) = 1024 bytes

1 MB (Megabytes) = 1024 KB (kilobytes)

It goes to Yottabyte in the same manner.

If you store a low-quality image or video, some text, or audio in your device, it's normally quantified in the measuring unit called kilobytes.

However, If you store the larger files like the JPEG image might range from 1-5 megabytes in size, they are quantified in a measuring unit called megabytes (MB).

Is a kilobyte 1000 or 1024 bytes?

The SI system (International System of Units) defines the kilo as 1000. Therefore, 1 KB = 1000 bytes.

However, our system stores binary data information, and traditionally we are using 1024 bytes. Therefore, when we talk about binary data calculation, then 1 KB = 1024 bytes.

How to convert bytes to MB by using an online Byte converter tool?

Now suppose you want to convert 15,260,453 bytes into MBs.

For converting the bytes to MB, do the following steps.

  • Open the online Byte Converter.
  • Enter the amount 15,260,453 in the "Numeric Value" section.
  • In the second column, "Unit From," select bytes as a measuring unit.
  • In the third column, "Unit To," select megabytes as a measuring unit.
  • Click on the "convert" button. It will give you the answer in the form of 14.553502082824707 MBs.
