Hi there i have designed and working on uploading files can you kindly point me in the wright direction to understand sizes off files.

Example this is a text file but dont understand the size of the file.

size: 297

If there is a file size chart for file sizes please let me no cheers

I got this far.
1,024 Byte = 1 Kilobyte (KB) 
1,024 Kilobyte (KB) = 1 Megabyte (MB)
1,073,741,824 Bytes = 1 Gigabyte (GB) 
1 Gigabyte (GB) = 1,024 Megabyte (MB)

size: 297
from the example above this txt file is 297 bytes is that correct.

Wish i new all about php DAM i will have to learn

if it's just basic text files then generally they are shown as kilobytes, which is the lowest. Those are basic computer size information, so you can google it for detailed explanations of bytes kilobytes. Normally it starts at kilobytes even for word documents.
but it could be bytes, it's either the first or second.
if it is a basic text file my guess would be bytes
