    In 2000, it was estimated that the deep Web contained approximately 7,500 terabytes  of data and 550 billion individual documents.[2]  Estimates based on extrapolations from a study done at University of California, Berkeley speculate that the deep Web consists of about 91,000 terabytes. By contrast, the surface Web (which is easily reached by search engines) is only about 167 terabytes; the Library of Congress, in 1997, was estimated to have 3,000 terabytes
