@jip31, you can keep this formula handy for future calculations:

1Terabytes = 1024Gigabytes
1Gigabytes = 1024Megabytes
1Megabytes = 1024Kilobytes
1Kilobytes = 1024Bytes
1Byte = 8Bits

You go downwards, you multiply by the number on the right side.
You go upwards, you divide by the number on the right side.

eg: 1
10 GB = 10*1024 MB
10 MB = 10/1024 GB

makes sense? Just keep in mind that people round it off to 1000 but in reality the number is 1024
