19,234,000,000,000,000 Bytes Required

19,234,000,000,000,000 bytes is the amount of computer storage the Mormon Family and Church History Department (FCHD) says will be required for their planned digitized version of the 2.5 million rolls of microfilm in their possession. The rolls contain three billion frames of information about an estimated 12 billion people. If you are having trouble counting the zeros, the number is 19 quadrillon bytes.
