Is there a way to change number types to bytes?



I was wondering if there was already a way to change the number types from decimal to bytes? I'm trying to make a visualthat shows the amount of storage used in TBs for an application. 


Thanks in advanced!

Hi @Daemetius,


Currently, Byte is not in the supported list of data types in Power BI Desktop. Here is a similar idea requesting data format as bytes on Power BI Ideas. You can vote it up and add your comments there to improve Power BI on this feature. Smiley Happy
