What is a GiB?
A gibibyte and a gigabyte are sometimes used synonymously, though technically they are not the same amount of storage. They are very close in size, however.
One gibibyte equals 1.074 gigabytes.
One gibibyte is equal to 2^30 or 1,073,741,824 bytes.
One gigabyte is equal to 10^9 or 1,000,000,000 bytes.
