Your friend would have to have 2048 500gb hard drives, since 500 gb hard drives run around $350.00 he would have had to spend around $700,000USD. It's either you lieing or your friend is an idiot.

I heard when the new HVD's come out i dont remember if it was seagate or who but somebody was going to put out a 1 petabyte HDD.... now this could be completely false. For nobody would ever use that lol.

But regardless HVD's are going to revolutionize Storage.


Oh and btw.. LOL @ 1 petabyte of notepad files .

There's 1 bit.

8 bits make one Byte.

1024 Bytes make one Kilobyte.

1024 Kilobytes make one Megabyte.

1024 Megabytes make one Gigabyte.

1024 Megabytes make one Terabyte.

1024 Terabytes make one Petabyte.

1024 Petabytes make one Exabyte.

1024 Exabytes make one Zettabyte.

1024 Zettabytes make one Yottabyte.

One Yottabyte is 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 bytes.

*Exa, Zetta, and Yotta are legitimate names, and not pulled out of Flanker's [backside].*
