If you exceed your free Drive allowance (either naturally or by stopping Google One payment), your Google account is effectively kneecapped:
> If you go over your storage limit, you won't lose anything. However, you won’t be able to store new files in Google Drive or store new Original quality photos or videos in Google Photos, and you may not be able to receive emails with your Gmail address.
I will admit this is a better policy than I was expecting (Amazon Photos, for example, will outright delete your photos if you stop paying for Prime). However, the point stands -- once you start storing stuff that counts against Drive allowance, you're effectively locking yourself into a subscription fee to use your Google account normally. That's not something I'm comfortable with, and if I can legally store photos without contributing to the cap, I'll do it.
Because they've already sort of labelled something Google Premium. The new Google One. https://one.google.com
I think the intention is to keep the title at least sort of describing what it is. I don't think Google wants to just offer a product labelled Google Premium as it sort of sounds like it incorporates everything Google offers, when this is just a media offering.
If he's paying 10/month for 2TB he's not using google's archival solutions (nearline and coldline). That's how much it costs for 2TB of Google Drive storage.
Their archival solutions are substantially cheaper.
Verizon has been rolling out cloud closure for nearly a year now. You shouldn't be using Verizon's cloud anyway when so many other option exist. If you have android device you can use Google One. 100 GB $1.99/month( $20/year ) 200 GB $2.99/month( $30/year ) 2 TB $9.99/month($100/year )plus other options and you share storage space with 5 other people.
But 65 gig of email? I've been using gmail for more than a decade and I'm at 11gb for gmail, drive AND photos. If you go to Google One does it say you have 65gb of MAIL? Can you post the screenshot?
“What happens to my files if I go over my storage limit?
If you go over your storage limit, you won't lose anything. However, you won’t be able to store new files in Google Drive or store new photos or videos in Google Photos, and you may not be able to receive emails with your Gmail address.

Your cost will be $20/mo for 2TB Google Drive Storage
You can find info on the store credit here and here. It varies by tier: 15gb (free) and 100gb get nothing, 200gb gets 3% back, 2tb and above get 10% back. As mentioned above, it doesn't get credited until 30 days after purchase (or shipment, I forget which) and can only be used in the Google Store, not in Google Play, etc.
klo gamau delete, harusnya upgrade storage sih
link nya ini atau ga bisa buka google drive, terus pilih Buy Storage
It is supposed to be 100GB but 2GB is probably some kind of a promotion you got in the past. Visit https://one.google.com/storage and click (i) icon next to the usage bar and it will tell you what the extra 2GB is. In my case, I have extra 3GB - 1 is for early adopter bonus, and 2 for 2015 security checkup bonus.
This is not a cell phone plan.
It's Google One cloud storage. which lets you back up your computer or add more space to your Gmail and Google Drive.
Just to give some context, I think this was posted to humorously point out that the original price (crossed out in the photo above) is $1.99 and the price at which Google is offering it now is also $1.99. (i.e. same price, there's no discount)
I am not sure why this was posted in this Google Fi subreddit, but there you have it.
It seems like maybe this was a promotion someone saw when they were reviewing their Google Fi cellphone plan on the Fi website.
It is unlimited, as is with any phone. Currently, even though you do not have a Pixel, you can login to your storage page in your google account - https://one.google.com/storage?i=m - and you'll find that your Photos don't take up too much (assuming, you haven't put them in Drive).
The difference was that the Pixel flagship phones would allow saving them in Original quality (that means uncompressed), whereas any other customer could only use the "High Quality" (compressed) option if they didn't wanna pay for storage.
Apparently a new all in one subscription service. Not too sure myself either. I got 100GB of storage first of all. This is the introductory page
Google allows 15GB storage for a Google account across Gmail, Google Photos, and Google Drive.
If you need more storage, Google charges $20/year for 100GB storage, or $30/year for 200GB. Source
Unless you need online storage, it's fantastically less expensive to get a small portable 1, 2 or 3 terabyte drive.
Lifetime unlimited storage sounds suspect af. Google drives most expensive plan i could see is two terrabyte https://one.google.com/about?hl=sv
im not sure we are talking about the same thing tho
You can get an overview of your Google Drive Storage from the links below (open on PC):
From here you can find items that are using up the most storage and delete them to make some space.
I've been using Gmail since it started in 2004 and I'm on 8.5 GB for Gmail which is still within the 15GB limit. I think most people who are hitting the limit are doing so through Photos and Drive.

Samsung cloud is closing down so you better save all your stuff that's in it or they'll be gone.
Techradar: Samsung Cloud Closing
You can usually switch it to another service. I chose to switch to OneDrive but I don't know anything about Google Drive. All cloud service providers have a data cap (I get 1TB with Office 365 after that I have to pay more).
Google Drive Pricing
Check under google one. It won't give you count it will give you size.
Note that it can take hours or even days for the GP indicators to catch up
Plus as you might imagine volume has been rather high the last few days to say the least
Is Google One available in India and what prices does it charge?
Workspace you're paying for a ton of other stuff more so than storage. Google One is the storage purchase, and the prices more or less match up. The 2TB is 10$ which is 2x5$ for 1TB. You also have more granularity since you can pay 100GB or 200GB, which I don't think you can with Office 365, if you don't need all the other crap.
Personally for my photos, at least for now, 100GB is enough. I use around 20GB right now so 100GB should last me a few years.
Google has Google One, which is cloud storage that you can buy and store data in. Then you can use the Photos app and store the pictures in full resolution.
Microsoft has OneDrive, and it's similar to Google One. You'll have to use the OneDrive app to sync photos.
There's Dropbox, it's the same as the others.
>Is there a way of searching which photos have been uploaded in original quality as opposed to high quality?
Original vs High quality is an account level setting, not a file level setting. Let me give you an example taken from tests i've done.
1> Create a new account, set to high quality.
2> Upload 5GB. Then check here
Google photos is at 0GB usage.
3> Change setting to original quality, upload 1GB.
4> Check again. Usage is now 6GB. Why? Because account is in original mode. Account cannot be reverted to high quality without deleting and reuploading entirely in high quality mode.
If it's just photos, Google One (what Google calls its paid cloud service) could be fine.
After June 1st, 2021, Google Photos is going to request that you have paid storage if you're using more than 15 GB of space. There will be a 2 year grace period for pre-existing media, however.
100 GB would be just $1.67/month.
200 GB would be just $2.50/month.
*assuming you go annually, of course [since you'd already know you need it anyway]
If you actually need more than that, then of course you could look at other options at that time.

I didn't even unintentionally mention it. You are just making assumptions to prove a point to yourself. I have no illusions about cloud services. I keep a good password with secondary authentication methods. I also am not so vain to think that anyone would give two shits about the pictures on my phone.
There is also no proof that your phone is more secure than a cloud account or vice versa. You could have some malware on it, it could get stolen/lost, or any other catastrophe like an SD card corruption and then you have nothing. All your precious photos and videos will be gone forever.
About the cloud storage, you literally get 15GB of free storage with your Google account. You can get 100GB for $20/year. How much is that SD card? A good 500GB card with good specs will run you $70-$80? That is 4 years of cloud storage with the 100GB plan or if you delete emails, documents, pictures and videos that are garbage (everyone has them) you could easily get by on 15 GB. How long have you had that SD card in your current phone? How long did you have the previous one? If you are getting a new card every 2 or 3 years (at the prices I mention) then you are losing money compared to the cloud.
If the criminals enabled 2FA, I do not think there is anything google can do. I've dealt with this on the Microsoft account end. 2FA is a massive lock on the account that is designed to lock out criminals and it is not designed to have an override.

>I need some way to delete about 10 gigs of text-based emails.
Just stumbled across this while looking at my storage, kind of nice: Google One Storage Management
200 GB plan gets you 3% store credit and 2 TB+ gets you 10%. I think you have to wait at least 30 days from purchase, meaning you have to pay for 2 months of service.
You can purchase a Google One membership and get a considerable amount of storage for cheap. But if you want a free option and already have unRAID, I'd look into Nextcloud.
Might not be a bad idea to invest in a cloud storage and backup solution such as this at least until you finish your master’s program.
One I liked above is just $2 per month for 200GB and $10 a month for 2TB. Cheaper if you sign up for annual subscription. It even keeps track of version history and supports sharing with family members.
I think most Google accounts have at least 15Gb of free storage, anything uploaded to Drive or Photos at original quality counts towards that limit. So yeah you can always enable original quality uploads on the 3a but you will eventually run out of space.
It might be worth checking out a storage plan on Google One, it's pretty cheap for 100Gb https://one.google.com/
We're both wrong. https://one.google.com/about 2TB is $10 a month. So 2 years.
there's also g suite, which allegedly provides unlimited google drive space for $10/month. Or backblaze for $5 a month. Either way, I've never heard of pcloud, and I wouldn't fork over that much money to a company I've never heard of under the assumption that they're going to uphold their end of the bargain for the rest of my life. Plus, 2TB isn't much around here. It's inconvenient to mix and match services like this. So even if they do stay in business, that 2TB isn't going to be very useful to you because you're going to need some kind of unlimited backup plan anyway once you get above 2TB.
What are you intending to store, and for how long? Multiple of the portable storage devices in our household has failed (luckily after we started transferring the important stuff onto our computers), so it's probably my biasness talking, but I don't really trust them for stuff I really need around.
I personally have shifted over to Dropbox. It's much more expensive in the long-run (10 USD per month), but I have peace of mind that everything I do, ever, will be safe. I just make sure my project files are in there and I don't have to worry about getting screwed over because my computer breaks down. It's also convenient because I have all my school and important documents, music, photos and videos synced between my phone, desktop and laptop. I recently even started syncing the actual music player installation. It's still quite wild when I start playing music and it's the last played file on my other devices.
Google is rolling out a successor to Google Drive called Google One, and it has cheaper plans than Dropbox, so that's something to consider if you want to take the plunge.
According to this page you will be automatically upgraded to the 2TB plan and enrolled in Google One soon.
>Initially, Google One will only be available on a limited basis. If you have a paid Drive storage plan, you’ll be automatically upgraded to Google One over the coming months.
Look out for an email with details on your new benefits, or visit our Help Center to learn more.
Google One plans will start at 100 GB for $1.99, 200 GB for $2.99, and 2 TB for $9.99 per month, while pricing for plans larger than 2TB will remain the same. (Existing 1 TB Drive plans will be upgraded to 2 TB at no extra cost.)
We're working on making Google One more widely available.
I wear my Pixel Buds daily and I've not had this issue, I did find they are easy to activate, but I started grabbing them from the top with three fingers and haven't had any issues since. Google has very good support and might even be will to help troubleshoot it. Not sure if you have a Google Drive plan, but if so you get Google One where you can speak to Google Experts for free!
Hope you get it sorted out!
>If I had only one user, then I'd pay Google, sure. As it is with five, it's just too much for essentially email (nobody cares about anything else in my family).
i was actually referring to Google One :-) Not just one user. I don't know how they handle it exactly, but what i have heard of is that gmail free accounts are indeed used to generate revenue (as in "you are the product") while paid accounts should be exempted from that. Thats what i was referring to.
as for the SMTP server, i guess i will have a testrun with another domain. Wanna be 100% sure before switching.
Might be worth having a look on https://one.google.com/storage/management and check out the Large Files sections. Could be there are a few large cameraphone videos?
Eu pessoalmente uso o Google Drive pela conveniência e por ser barato pra um krl. O plano de 2TB da Google custa menos de 40 reais/mês por ex
Mas, se vc tiver a capacidade técnica e uma grana pra montar um mini servidorzinho na sua casa e nunca ter que pagar nada pra nenhuma empresa, você pode fazer um setup com RAID na sua própria casa. O r/selfhosted é um sub voltado pra isso.
>Wonder if we can easily do this with NAS?
I'm sure the comments below are full of people saying it's totally seamless and easy, but compared to just paying a monthly fee and not having to worry about managing your own storage, no - it's not easy.
No question you can figure it out if you're at all tech-inclined, but it's definitely more work.
Google Drive offers up to 30TB for individuals, but it gets pricey. NAS would definitely be more cost effective if you're OK with the downsides.
I just tested it myself :3
Here is what I found out:
>account A has a google one subscription
account B has no subscription
Account A creates a family
Account B can join it, but cannot subscribe to any google plan it self.
if account B has also an active subscription and then joins the family
Both accounts can manage there own subscription under:
But the drawback is, that only the google one plan of the famliy manager gets shared.
Which mean in my case the accounts have the following storage cap:
Because there is no option to swap the family manager, there is no way to combine more than two google subscription into one single drive - at least thats what I think...
If anyone wants to comment on this feel free to do so :D
Honestly, if they added domain support to the product already called Google One, it would be worth it.
https://one.google.com/about/plans Can't sign up (or even view the listed plams) if logged into Chrome with a gsuite account but it's $1.99/month for 100 GB storage that can be shared with 5 people. If they add email with a custom domain, I can't imagine many people here would be bothered about having to move over to Google One and keep everything at Google for a reasonable price vs. losing things even free Google accounts have.
It never has shown unlimited. It'll show 0% used if there is no quota.
Also https://one.google.com/storage < individual users can see here. If you look at your personal vs Gsuite account (or an account with a tier of storage) you'll see an actual limit here with a bar showing what services are using what. If you're in the "as much as you need", it'll show nothing.
Workspaces has always been this way. My actual workplace uses Gsuite basics. It shows percentages of used storage in the admin UI and it shows the breakdown the same way that it looks in your personal account in the non-workspace UI.

No, shared albums where you are not the owner should not be taking up space. (Just make sure you haven't tapped the "save photos" option within the album - this will essentially duplicate the photos to your library and will take up space.)
By the way, where do you see the 9.6GB number? Most google account storage has been unified under one plan these days and that number might include ALL your google storage, including Drive, gmail, etc. If you're a Google One member you can see the breakdown at https://one.google.com/storage.
Google has their Google One VPN offering. But this only protects you from your Internet provider (ISP, Work, School, etc)
It does not protect tracking based on information you give. So for example, if you log into your account on the site you are using.
>No. You can’t decide how much storage each person in your family group gets. It’s worth noting that everyone in your family group already has 15 GB of storage at no charge with their Google Account. They only start using the shared storage from Google One after they use up their 15 GB.
It doesn't sound like it. I think you can only have 1 plan and may cross out.
And, FTR, if you visited https://one.google.com/storage/management (I still don't know if you did or not, since you never mentioned it), it would have suggested those emails with large attachments as the first to delete, along with convenient dialog to just click through quickly that would have deleted only those.
Did you check "All Mail" label (technically gmail doesn't have "folder" - only labels) ? Deleting "labels" don't delete emails that used to be under those labels - this is why gmail doesn't have "folders", as they are not folders. You can easily have inbox/sent/spam empty, while there's tons of stuff under "All Mail" (which is a special label that includes all messages). It still seems like you're guessing - you don't have to track down the storage usage - instead, you just visit https://one.google.com/storage/management .
FWIW, myaccount.google.com links to one.google.com/storage. Gmail also used to link directly to that page, and I'm pretty sure quota warning email also links to it as well as drive storage page.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
They are telling me to send them "feedback" using the Google One app or going to one.google.com. I wonder if these "feedback" ever get to see the light of day.

Dude you get 15Gb free on google. Did you used all of that just on gmail? (I highly doubt). If you use it only for emails then the space will fill up at about 3 million emails.
If you have any files on your drive, move them to another account so you can have space for mails. Another gmail account just for your files, mega (50gb free) etc.
Also if you want to buy go to <strong>this link</strong>. Maybe a Nepali dollar $ Card will work to buy. Also there are few other nepali service providers that can help you buy it. If you have anyone abroad, ask them. It is as low as $1.99/ month & $19.99 per year for 100gb.
I just got my Google account for my uni and I tried checking through the following Google link but all it says is "You're using 0 GB" cause I only use it for emails and I store my personal stuff in the OneDrive account my school gives. Probably unlimited storage by Google for education.
https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/7507349#requirements is more informative than https://one.google.com/support !!! Lists new/open cases much sooner. Still doesn't include chat logs, which I remember being told would be - and remember were - accessible at the latter URL or something close.
2)It seems like I misremembered what was included in Google One - It was Google Play (since discontinued) that included YouTube Premium and YouTube Music? Hard to figure out. Google One support claims that no features of Google One have been removed - but of course that's obviously false - Google Play is gone! (...though YouTube Music is close to a full replacement.)
From the google FAQ (https://one.google.com/faq/storage):
What happens to my files if I go over my storage limit?
If you go over your storage limit, you won't lose anything. However, you won’t be able to store new files in Google Drive or store new photos or videos in Google Photos, and you may not be able to receive emails with your Gmail address.
Need more room? You can learn more about clearing up space or upgrade to Google One to get more storage.

Google offers a cloud storage subscription service called 'Google One's:
If you are subscribed to it, you get 10% off (store credits). I have it.
So when I bought pixel pro, I got 10% discount each (I bought two).
Also if you run out of space you can select the lowest plan to get access to Google one's cleanup tool:
It will find the largest attachments
You can then downgrade your account when you are done.
You could also connect to a desktop mail app (thunderbird) and then sort by email size
Hi OP, it sounds like you paid someone for a shared drive. What this means is that they are the owner and admin of said shared drive, you have no control over your data and they can peek anytime. This kind of resold access is often from a shady source (sometimes it's actually in a fourth party's Google Workspace, in the best case e.g., some American college or university). Which is even more bad news, as you have no idea whom you've shared your data with. Finally, it's also against Google's terms, which may explain why it's gone now, although that could be due to the third-party seller or whoever the actual owner/admin of that Workspace is.
If you trust that third-party seller, reach out to them again tomorrow, if they don't respond by then. Otherwise, assume it's gone and consider whatever was in it stolen in the worst case or lost in the best case.
If it's Google Drive you want to use, you can consider paying for Google One, if that's available where you live.

Generally most e-mails are tiny, it's probably a small handful of emails with very large attachments taking all the space.
Google provides some useful tools to help, one is:
You can also search for large emails with filters like "size:5mb"
If you get a lot of spam, especially in the promotion tab, you can filter by them and delete those, they generally have a ton of pictures and shit taking space.
Without considering their "convert quality photos" feature that doesn't work at all, even after months of reporting such issue.
PS: picture from https://one.google.com/storage/management
Google gives you 15GB of storage for free with any Google (Gmail) account. If you need more storage here are the plans: https://one.google.com/about/plans TLDR: for $20/yr you can get 100GB which is probably more than the average user will need.
"Ecosphere" or "ecosystem" are just generic terms, sorry for the jargon use... basically all I meant was that if you already have a Gmail account and use an Android phone and Google's other services, then Chromebooks will mesh very nicely with what you've got going on. Likewise, if you use an iPhone and rely on Apple's products and services, then you'd be in Apple's "ecosystem" or "ecosphere".
> What does this say?
It still says the same as it did in my original post.
https://one.google.com/storage shows: "Your storage is full. To upload new files and photos, and send and receive email, you need to either manage your storage by freeing up space, or get more storage with Google One." AND "Google Drive 0.58 GB Gmail 8.26 GB Google Photos 14.61 GB"
Google One lowest plan is 2TB for $9.99/month. You can share across 6 accounts. It's similar pricing to MS 365 which is 100/year for the family (70 for the personal).
Google first gives you 3 times more storage for free compared to Microsoft.
But also Google is cheaper for paid storage. Take 100 GB which is the most common. Google is almost 20% cheaper than Microsoft.
But it is not just Microsoft being a lot more expensive for the storage. But they do not have anything close to the Google Photos software and particular they do not have AI anywhere close to what Google offers.
Google gives you 3X more storage for free.
5GB from Microsoft
15GB for free from Google
GP quota allocation has some major quirks. The help files are superficial and don't adequately cover all the details. Some of the docs are so minimal that they can actually be deceptive.
Here is a concrete example of what I'm talking about. This is from an actual test.
Google photos is at 0GB usage because upload was high quality.
4> Check again. Usage is now 6GB.
This shows is that GP will reallocate previously stored media. If it's originally stored as high quality, then you later upload something in original, it will reallocate all at the more expensive rate and it all goes against your quota.
I get into discussions with people who adamantly insist that it doesn't work this way, or at least it shouldn't. But it's tests like this that reveal the actual answer, not what google says or what people vaguely believe.
Got the same problem and maybe a solution. Using pixel 5 and upload my photos at high quality, but Google Fotos takes up to 25 GB. But i found a way:
There is a potential solution thanks to Google Photos on the web. There I can select the menu item "High Quality" in the settings, whereupon it is suggested to me that I could free up 25 GB if I compress my photos to "High Quality". after some minutes i can see a drop for google photos at this overview: https://one.google.com/storage - from 25 to 17 gb after 20 minutes
I found a storage manager at https://one.google.com/storage/management
Storage manager only shows files that count towards your 17 GB storage limit.
Free up space across Gmail, Google Photos, and Google Drive when you review and remove extra, discarded, and large items.
There I only have 118MB of large photos/videos. It's possible they are all small photos but I have no idea how I can see what is counting to that 23GB
Yes, exactly. You chose to be part of a family group for the YTPremium discount. If you want to control an aspect of the account, get your own. It's not even that expensive.
OK, but seriously, to actually help I'm looking at my Google One settings, and according to this page what you are saying about sharing data isn't true. I share my google one storage with my kids, and I cannot see their data and they cannot see mine (unless explicitly shared with them). The way it works for us is that if KidA uses up their free storage and still saves stuff to their drive, it'll just eat into my purchased "Google One" storage. It doesn't allow anyone else in the family group to see it though. Does that make sense? And yes, we have YouTube premium as well as Google One shared storage (and apps shared on Family settings in the Google Store, and location sharing turned on as well).
Do you have stuff in Google Drive/Gmail or upload Google Photos in Original quality? Check at link above and tell us what is using space
Pixel 5 uploads in High quality will be free, Photos and videos uploaded in Original quality will count towards your Google Account storage.
You could try to "Reduce the size of your photos & videos" and recover storage if you uploaded in Original Quality.
Apple has a different model and their brand loyalty is solid. They have done it right. They have some solid pros and some solid cons (subjective to the user at hand). As for Google they don't have the same type of loyalty in a way so they make up their revenue based on what worked in the past, but adapting to how the world is changing (less computers, more phones/tablets).
For the services, Android makes it easy to use other services like OneDrive, OneNote. You can also use non-Google Maps if you want easily on Android. I'm not going to debate the overall OS because this is the overall topic, but you have options to use less Google products. I can use my Outlook app for all my email, including work or Nine (which I have too) for work email.
Google's biggest revenue stream is still their core advertising model. So until some other things blow up, it's going to stay number 1. That said there are ways to pull yourself out of some of their streams (like gmail, keep, gmaps, etc).
> Even Google charges for more storage.
Apple offers smaller storage options (Google's smallest is 2tb), but they charge the same for 2TB in the US: $9.99.
They are all in their "One" setup so you can share it across families too. Microsoft does a similar thing with their 365 offerings.
Yes you can. You do have 15GB of free storage on your Google account, but once that is full the plans start at $2 a month or $20 a year for 100GB. More about the plans here.
You need Google One:
Looks like an affiliate link but isn't.
Pro tip, don't ignore promo emails from Google one as they occasionally contain links to free devices from the Google play store. The last one I got was their version of Alexa when it was the latest thing.
Yes, advanced search. If that didn't work, then you will definitely have to reach out to google support. I assume they don't give out their contact number. They have something called Google One for storage which seems to have Chat support there. If you reach out to them via email, may be they will get back to you within 24 hours.
Do you have Google One? This might not work for you, but I went to this URL:
And it'll tell me how much storage my Gmail is occupying.
If that doesn't work, you can go to the bottom left of your Gmail, where you have how much storage you're using, and that might be a clickable link. Go to it, and see if it tells you how much storage your Gmail is using.
Believe me... I know what you're saying. I had 15 years of data there, and was only using 3 gigs... Protonmail wasn't enough for my needs, but Mailbox.org certainly was. That's who I switched. to.
Can't seem to - I'm currently at my limit (reached it today) and trying to go to chat or support in one.google.com just takes me to a screen saying I'm over the limit and to sign up for Google One. And the support option seems to only be for Google One members. :-(
Steam doesn't have download limits but your ISP may have bandwidth limits to see if there's a cap. Google Drive has a limit unless you are willing to pay for additional capacity.
No other service comes close in storage costs, or features.
Amigo, armazenamento é caro. Pra vc ter uma ideia veja os planos do Google drive aqui:
Pra vc ter uma ideia, o plano de 2tb é 350,00 por ano.
Então se você não quiser pagar por mês, a melhor opção é comprar um HD externo como o pessoal recomendou.
If you're using an Android phone, you could sign up for a $10/mo+ Google One plan: https://one.google.com/about/vpn
It looks like one of the better VPNs out there in terms of privacy (if their whitepaper is accurate, it's the best I've ever heard of) and I imagine "Google VPN" won't be able to be penalized quite as easily as some smaller provider's.
Go here: https://one.google.com/u/0/storage?hl=en is your storage full? That will cause you not to get messages.
Do you have any forwarding set on this account?
When you are in webmail in a browser, in the search bar if you do "in:all" do you still not see them?
If it is none of these, I am sorry I am out of ideas. :(
>With a 2TB (or higher) Google One subscription, you get 10% back on all Google Store purchases. It’s supposed to arrive 30 days after an order has shipped, but Pixel 5 pre-orderers have yet to be credited. Google told us today that Pixel 5 Store credits will be available by Friday.
>For day one pre-orderers (in the US), the Pixel 5 started shipping from the Google Store at the end of October. A Google One support document tells members that “Store Credit is granted 30 days after shipment of order.” As of the start of this month, it’s officially late for buyers statewide, as well as in Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, and Australia, where the perk is available.
>“Store credit earned on this purchase was added to your account balance and can be used on the purchase of any Google Store device or accessory.”
>Another wrinkle to this is how the “Store Credit Earned” section at the bottom of the “Order details” page for the Pixel 5 suggests that the 10% cashback — $69.90 in the US — or 3% for those on the 200GB plan has already been credited. In reality, the Google Store has not sent out any emails regarding it, and no credits are available to spend when making a new purchase.
Yes. That storage is shared across all the google services: Gmail, Drive, photos.

From what I understand, you have to have at least a $9.99 plan for Google 1. I have the $2.99 one, so it does absolutely nothing for me. https://one.google.com/about/vpn
For people who have already used up some of their free 15 GB storage and want to clean it up a bit: https://one.google.com/storage/management. It gives you an overview of what's stored (Gmail attachments, spam/trashed mails, photos, files, ...) and let's you choose what to delete to free up space.
I was on the Google One 100GB a year plan, just recently moved too 200GB for £24.99 a year. Personally I’m happy to pay any amount to ensure my data is not lost. Google One
It looks comparable to what Google is offering with their One service or whatever they're calling it these days
I think I'm going to have to start using my Plex server again. I have a few terabytes on there and it should be good enough for me and my family. But I've been toting Google photos for years now so I'm not sure what I'm going to do.... And in case you're wondering yes, if you buy Plex as a service you can use it to back up all of your pictures and videos and movies and well whatever else you want. It's a really good video interface and overall media interface. The downside is you must host your own flex server so it means a computer perpetually connected to the internet always on and has enough storage for whatever you want to put on it. I wish you luck. :)
Hi, is this different than Google 1 Drive. I just signed up for 2TB (there was not any 1tb option). As I am filling up the space I see that they have 'upgrade storage' option to 10 TB and more. So it seems they must be watching the usage. Either you are grandfathered in or I signed up for the wrong thing! https://one.google.com
It sounds great. Can you provide me with some links? I found only 2TB option for Google Drive for €10/month: https://one.google.com/about?utm_source=drive&utm_campaign=marketing_footer&hl=en
The second question is what do you mean by Layeronline? I found only a marketing agency with that name.
i think the trickier part is finding the thousands of <2mb or <1mb emails that end up adding up to 1GB worth.
Google One has a neat feature to now sort out the biggest of your emails without searching and tells you what attachment you put in there. but it seems every email forwarded with those attachments increase your email size.
even deleting the original email with the attachments won't shrink the email itself. also you can't sort thru emails this way and it does take forever to scroll back. lastly, emails with 4MB attachments somehow appear to be almost 7MB stored.
This is subscribed through their global Google One cloud offering (the data quantity you buy counts against Photo, Gmail and Drive) so you'd have to look at their global cloud sales.
The "Google One" app offers support via email or chat for Google services.
There's also a web version at https://one.google.com ... I'm not sure if there are any differences between the web version and the app.
I assume you have to be signed up for Google One to use it.
[Google One is Google's online storage service, basically lets you increase your free 15GB to however much you want. $2/month for 100GB.]
Original-quality only gets you over 16 megapixel photos and 1080p quality video. If that matters, have him get his own Gmail. It’s better for both of you. Unless he works for you, you shouldn’t have admin access over his Google Account. If he works for you, get him his own G Suite account and you can setup shared albums.
Do not use G Suite accounts for personal use. I say this from 12 years experience.
Gmail account with unlimited high-quality is great. Gmail account with original-quality is fine and your storage can be extended with Google One. I’d really test the high-quality option first though. Unless you’re a professional photographer, I think you’ll be surprised.
