Question: How many bytes are in a kilobyte?
There are 1,000 bytes in 1 kilobyte
For every one Kilobyte (KB) there are 1,000 Bytes (B).
Note: In the past computers only used base 2 (binary) for file sizes. However, in December of 1998, the IEC introduced a new system that uses the metric system, so sizes that use prefixes like 'kilo' are equal to 1,000 and not 1,024.
There are 1,024 bytes in 1 kibibyte
For every one Kibibyte (KiB) there are 1,024 Bytes (B).
With a total of 1,000 bytes it is relative to the values shown below.
- Byte (B)
- Kilobyte (KB)
- Kibibyte (KiB)
- How many kilobyte in a byte
- How much is 1 bit, byte, kilobyte, megabyte, gigabyte, etc.?
- How to find available hard drive space.
