Data Transfer Calculator

Simplify your file transfers with our easy-to-use Data Transfer Calculator. Estimate how long it takes to move your data based on file size and speed.

Transferring large files between devices can always be a tough and time-consuming task. So, if you calculate the time before transferring the data to a new device, it can be quite helpful. Before calculating the data transfer, you must know a few parameters, such as your data transfer speed and the size of the file. Also, make sure you know the units for both the speed and file size.

Basic knowledge of units related to data transfer.

GB: Stands for Gigabyte (One gigabyte is equivalent to 1,024 megabytes)
Gb: Stands for Gigabit (One gigabit is equivalent to 1/8 of a gigabyte.)

MB: Stands for Megabyte (One megabyte is equivalent to 1,000 kilobytes.)
Mb: Stands for Megabit (One megabit is equivalent to 1/8 of a megabyte.)

KB: Stands for Kilobyte (One kilobyte is equivalent to 1,024 bytes.)
Kb: Stands for Kilobit (One kilobit is equivalent to 1/8 of a kilobyte.)

Data transfer formula

The formula for data transfer speed is:

Speed = Data Transferred / Duration

To find the duration of the data transfer:

Duration = Data Transferred / Speed
