As you will probably work out from my profile, I'm a software developer. This is sort of a software development question, but I think this is more suited to English language too.
Feel free to migrate if you think the question does not belong here.
Say I want to refer to the data size, or capacity of something:
- A floppy disk can hold 1.44
- My flash drive can hold 16
- My internet connection can operate at a maximum of 50
- I have just managed to compress a file from 1
megabyteto just 200
How do I collectively refer to these units of data size/capacity?
