    PB = Peanut Butter, like PB&J.
    EB = extra butter, like what you put on toast.



    Nah, lol. Pyvnetrvne is right.

    Do we even have anything above Terrabytes? I mean like, not the names, but do we even have 100,000 GB? I thought that the biggest was a Terrabyte, I knew about the rest, but isn't that as far as we've gotten? If so, why do we have all these names above Terrabyte?

    O yeah.
    That will take a long time...
    Get 2 of them and a 1TB file and try and copy it from one of them to the other, that would take ages.

    Inside it's two 500GB drives RAIDed together.

    They're used often in theoretical maximums, server storage, etc... Aside from that, the prefixes aren't unique to computers, and are used in general mathematics as well as other fields:

    kilobyte :)

    I installed one of these DVD Jukeboxes last week, with the Flipper option that enables it to do doublesided DVDs.

    It holds 700 DVDs (double sides) @ 9.4GB ea = 6.5TB

    Because data storage is based off of the metric system.
