How do I calculate the volume of or documents and files for storage or scanning?  

SAS know that trying to calculate the volume of paper, or files in cupboards and drawers can be daunting so we have put together an easy to understand chart that will assist you with your estimation.

The calculations below are based on A4 documents however there will be variations depending on how tight you pack your files in your current storage system.   

You  can use the table below to calculate physical storage space of paper documents and electronic storage space of scanned documents.

These metrics are chosen in rounded form so that the system estimates come out to exact rounded numbers which make the systems easier to describe and discuss.
