Unit MB [Binary]
Name megabyte
Category Data
Details A binary megabyte (MB) is a unit of digital data storage in the field of data management and computing. It is equivalent to 2^20 or 1,048,576 bytes, where one byte represents 8 bits. The term "binary" in this context indicates that the unit follows a base-2 system, which is the foundational numbering system used in digital computers.

The term "megabyte" originates from the Greek word "megas," which means large, and the English word "byte." A binary megabyte is commonly used to represent the capacity of storage devices, such as hard disk drives, RAM, and memory cards, or the size of digital data, such as files, images, and software programs.

The Binary Megabyte is not to be confused with the Decimal Megabyte (also known simply as "megabyte"), which is equal to 10^6 or 1,000,000 bytes. This decimal system is often used in marketing materials and specifications of storage devices.
