    Too much evidence and a fugitive doctor is free of charges. Unreal!<a href="http://news.yahoo.com/drug-charges-dropped-because-too-much-evidence-182917977.html?_esi=1" >http://news.yahoo.com/drug-charges-dropped-because-too-much-evidence-182917977.html?_esi=1</a> IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - A fugitive doctor charged in the nation's largest prosecution of Internet pharmacies is getting off in part because there's just too much evidence: more than 400,000 documents and two terabytes of electronic data that federal authorities say is expensive to maintain. The article does say that the doctor is back in his home country of Panama and that they do not extradite their own citizens. So really, the fact that there is too much evidence is probably not the only reason why charges were dropped.How much is a terabyte? After looking it up, I was surprised. A terabyte is next after a gigabyte. Our flash sticks hold gigs and gigs of data and their complaining of holding 2 terabytes? [​IMG]In standard SI usage, 1 terabyte (TB) equals 1000000000000 bytes = 1000 to the 4th power, or 10 to the 12th power bytes.Using the traditional binary interpretation, a terabyte is 1099511627776 bytes = 10244 = 240 bytes = 1 tebibyte (TiB).<table class="infobox" style="font-size:11px;border:1px solid #aaaaaa;background-color:#f9f9f9;color:#000000;margin:.5em 0px .5em 1em;padding:.2em;clear:right;text-align:center;line-height:1.5em;font-family:sans-serif;"><th style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#ccccff;" colspan="5">Multiples of <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Byte" title="Byte">bytes</a></th><th style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#ddddff;" colspan="2"><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SI_prefix" title="SI prefix">SI decimal prefixes</a></th><th style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#eeddff;" rowspan="2"><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_prefix" title="Binary prefix">Binaryusage</a></th><th style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#ddddff;" colspan="2"><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_60027" title="IEC 60027">IEC binary prefixes</a></th><th style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#eeddff;">Name(Symbol)</th><th style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#eeddff;">Value</th><th style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#eeddff;">Name(Symbol)</th><th style="vertical-align:top;background-color:#eeddff;">Value</th><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilobyte" title="Kilobyte">kilobyte</a> (kB)10<sup style="line-height:1em;">3</sup>2<sup style="line-height:1em;">10</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kibibyte" title="Kibibyte">kibibyte</a> (KiB)2<sup style="line-height:1em;">10</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megabyte" title="Megabyte">megabyte</a> (MB)10<sup style="line-height:1em;">6</sup>2<sup style="line-height:1em;">20</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mebibyte" title="Mebibyte">mebibyte</a> (MiB)2<sup style="line-height:1em;">20</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gigabyte" title="Gigabyte">gigabyte</a> (GB)10<sup style="line-height:1em;">9</sup>2<sup style="line-height:1em;">30</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibibyte" title="Gibibyte">gibibyte</a> (GiB)2<sup style="line-height:1em;">30</sup>terabyte  (TB)10<sup style="line-height:1em;">12</sup>2<sup style="line-height:1em;">40</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tebibyte" title="Tebibyte">tebibyte</a> (TiB)2<sup style="line-height:1em;">40</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petabyte" title="Petabyte">petabyte</a> (PB)10<sup style="line-height:1em;">15</sup>2<sup style="line-height:1em;">50</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pebibyte" title="Pebibyte">pebibyte</a> (PiB)2<sup style="line-height:1em;">50</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exabyte" title="Exabyte">exabyte</a> (EB)10<sup style="line-height:1em;">18</sup>2<sup style="line-height:1em;">60</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exbibyte" title="Exbibyte">exbibyte</a> (EiB)2<sup style="line-height:1em;">60</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zettabyte" title="Zettabyte">zettabyte</a> (ZB)10<sup style="line-height:1em;">21</sup>2<sup style="line-height:1em;">70</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zebibyte" title="Zebibyte">zebibyte</a> (ZiB)2<sup style="line-height:1em;">70</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yottabyte" title="Yottabyte">yottabyte</a> (YB)10<sup style="line-height:1em;">24</sup>2<sup style="line-height:1em;">80</sup><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yobibyte" title="Yobibyte">yobibyte</a> (YiB)2<sup style="line-height:1em;">80</sup>See also: <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Quantities_of_bits" title="Template:Quantities of bits">Multiples of bits</a> ·  <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orders_of_magnitude_(data)" title="Orders of magnitude (data)">Orders of magnitude of data</a>  Oh, the next time I commit a crime and I'll be sure to leave pages and pages and pages of evidence so I can walk too! ........ at least 2000000000000 bytes or roughly enough to equal 625,000 copies of War and Peace. ! :thumb:

    omg unreal to me it just plain ole sounds like they are to lazy to go through it all. i have a 1terabyte hard drive which is 1000 gigabytes of data and it does not take me forever to go through my files

    Hee Hee haw haw Ho HoMben,You sound like a Dr in your Byte talk, so impressed with your scientific intellect. I was reading and thought, I don't know a BYTE from a BITE. All I know is H20.I really can't blame them for letting the guy go, I would say forget it also. Tee Hee

    That's funny, lucky8s! But no Dr Mben here. All that info can be found on the internet. I'm impressed that daremeto has a 1 terabyte hard drive. I have a 289 gig hard drive and it seems to take forever to run scans on it, virus, defrag, etc. I can't imagine the time it would take on a terabyte. Maybe a terabyte of RAM would speed things up. lol

     You would think so, but it wouldn't. Most computers aren't designed to have more than 32GB of RAM - adding more is just a waste. One thing that really speeds things up is switching to the solid state drives from the traditional spinning disc hard drive, but they are still very expensive by comparison.
