Bits and Bytes
I know a bit is either a 0's or a 1's and a byte is different combinations of 0's and 1's in group's in 8.
But when performing a 'copy' bit-level or byte-level whats the difference.
My guess is bit-level does it in more detail down to the 1's and 0's and byte-level does it in less detailed. Like taking a picture, when your close to the subject more detail is visible and when your faraway less detail but more things are seen.
Which bring me to a benifit of byte-level copy. Its faster.
But all of that is just speculation I've Google'd and try'd other serach engines but couldn't find good info to describe the difference or just describe them separately.
