Terabyte

1 terabyte= 10^6 megabyte

Let me add some more to this:

1 byte is large enough to store one character of text (for the English language -- you may need two bytes for Chinese or other some other language characters).
1 kilobyte = 1000 bytes    (or sometimes 1024, depending on who you ask)
1 megabyte = 1000 kilobytes
1 gigabyte = 1000 megabytes
1 terabyte = 1000 gigabytes
1 petabyte = 1000 terabytes
and so on...
And 8 bytes = 1 kb.

A terabyte is made up of 1000 gigabytes, which is made up of 1000 megabytes. So a terabyte is larger than a megabyte.

TB > GB > MB > KB > bytes
