    There are 2 ways to convert from KB to say MB or GB. There's a binary conversion and a decimal conversion. The official SI standard dictates that K,M and G are multiples of 1000. This is also the standard harddisk manufactures use. Your computer however uses binary conversion (1024 or 2^10).

    So binary conversion is:

    1 GByte
    1024 MByte
    1048576 KByte
    1073741824 Bytes

    Decimal conversion (SI standard):

    1 GByte
    1000 MByte
    1000000 KByte
    1000000000 Bytes
