# What is *data size*?

**Data Size**is a category of units to measure

*Data Storage*capacity.

**Data Storage**(

*more accurately*:

**) is a core function and fundamental component of computers which stores texts, numbers, pictures, audios, videos, and nearly any other form of information in the form of a string of bits (binary digits), each of which has a value of "0" or "1".**

*Digital Data Storage*## Input

**Byte**is a unit of digital information that most commonly consists of eight bits. Historically, the byte was the number of bits used to encode a single character of text in a computer. Depending on the hardware, sizes from 1 to 48 bits have been used to represent a byte.

## Output

**Bit**is a basic unit of information in computing and digital communications. It's short for

*binary digits*. A bit represents a logical state with one of two possible values, "0" or "1".
