Byte formatting for Google Sheets

kaustubhcs that works as a formula, and is nice for using actual binary bytes, but there's advantages to using a custom number format instead of a formula! (no secondary cell, copied values are still the original byte count, etc).

Google's very sparse docs on number formats: https://developers.google.com/sheets/api/guides/formats#meta_instructions

This is very useful! I can only get it to format 3 options, so if you want the MB/GB/TB version instead of the KB/MB/GB version, this looks like it works:

[<1000000000]0.00,," MB";[<1000000000000]0.00,,," GB";0.00,,,," TB"
