Definition Edit

Storage capacity refers to the amount of data a storage device can hold. Storage capacity is given in kilobytes, megabytes, or gigabytes.

Overview Edit

"On average, one page of typed text holds 2 kilobytes (KB) of data; thus, 250,000 pages x 2 KB/page = 500,000 KB, or 488 megabytes (MB). A data CD with a capacity of 700 MB retails for $0.75, and a flashdrive with a capacity of 4 gigabytes costs about $13.00."[1]
