Drive capacity varies with file size, formatting, settings, software, operating system and other factors. Performance is required for a variety of applications, from mobile devices to industrial applications.

Definition of capacity: KIOXIA Corporation defines a megabyte (MB) as 1,000,000 bytes, a gigabyte (GB) as 1,000,000,000 bytes and a terabyte (TB) as 1,000,000,000,000 bytes. A computer operating system, however, reports storage capacity using powers of 2 for the definition of 1GB = 2^30 = 1,073,741,824 bytes and therefore shows less storage capacity. Available storage capacity (including examples of various media files) will vary based on file size, formatting, settings, software and operating system, such as Microsoft Operating System and/or pre-installed software applications, or media content. Actual formatted capacity may vary.

  • 1 MB (megabyte) = 1,000,000 bytes.
  • A kibibyte (KiB) means 2^10, or 1,024 bytes.

Read and write speed may vary depending on various factors such as host devices, software (drivers, OS etc.), and read/write conditions.
