Luckily, the shared pool of storage means that there’s now no point in using hacks that allow you to store personal files in Gmail. This website will show you exactly how much space is being used by each Google service — Gmail, Google Drive, and Google+ Photos.
If you have documents in Microsoft Office or OpenOffice format, you can convert them to Google Docs files to save space.
To find the files consuming the most space in your Google Drive, click the All items option in the sidebar, click the Sort button, and select Quota used. Videos of up to 15 minutes can also be stored in Google+ photos without counting towards your storage quota, whether or not you’re signed up for Google+.
If you use the Google+ app on your Android phone and have it set to automatically upload the photos you take to your Google+ account, you’ll find that it automatically uploads the photos in full-size mode by default, consuming storage space. When you reach your maximum storage capacity, Google will automatically convert photos to 2048 pixels before storing them in your Google+ photos.
All interesting stuff but it would be good if you could spread the info round about other servers apart from just Google. I wish to know when I save my gmail attachments in Google drive, and don't delete that mail in gmail itself, would that file occupy 2 times storage (i.e. 2nd, In any case, after I save the attachment in G Drive, will I be able to search that mail in future and open that attachment from the mail itself? DID YOU KNOW?Scientists believe that the maximum height a tree can grow is between 122-130 meters before the effects of gravity and the stress of moving water to the highest point in the tree renders it unable to grow any farther (the tallest known tree, a Redwood in northern California, is 112.7 meters high).

Google wants you to lock down your security settings, and is willing to bribe you to get that done.
Tomorrow is apparently "Safer Internet Day", which you most likely didn't mark on your calendar. Celebrating the launch, Google also bumped up Gmail storage from seven and a half gigabytes to ten gigabytes of free space per user, the Gmail team announced in a blog post. The increase will take effect over the next 24 hours. However, as The Verge points out, with these new tiers Google has actually raised storage prices.
When you upgrade to a paid account, your Gmail account storage will also expand to 25 GB of free storage space.
A web-based file viewer lets anyone easily browse shared files and open over thirty different file types, such as Photoshop images, Illustrator vector drawings and HD clips. Other features include the ability to add and reply to comments on any media (PDF, image, videotape, etc.) and get notified when other people comment on or wish to share documents with you. Though Google Drive appears to be an enterprise-focused service tied to the Google Apps offering, the company made sure to include a few consumer-centric features. Will you use a Google Drive or does it look like yet another me-too crappy service from Google? As for me, I’m not sure I feel comfortable knowing Google scans and indexes all the files uploaded to Google Drive.
Do you know Google offers you free 15 GB of storage capacity which you can use for Google account such as Gmail, Google plus photos, Google drive ? Now enter the user name and password of your Google account for which you want to find out the space used. In the picture above you can see that I have used 84% of my storage capacity which is 12.73 GB. If you point out the pie chart you can see how much space is used by each Google account such as Gmail, Google drive, Google plus photos. Bringing it all together: 15 GB now shared between Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos Life gets a bit easier when your Google products work well togethera€”whether thata€™s inserting a Drive file into an email or sharing a photo from Drive on Google+. You may know that Google was giving you 5 GB of free storage for Google Drive where you can store your files and documents.

Maybe you were only using 3 GB or 4 GB of your Gmail storage and other space was available for free but that was not available for Google Drive where you may wanted more storage and only option for you was to upgrade your account. I think this is an awesome update that Google got in their system because I didn't used too much Gmail storage but I used Drive storage and when it got full I moved to SkyDrive to make backup of some important files. PDF file format was created by adobe and in beginning adobe reader was the only program that was able to handle PDF files. You may have noticed that in Windows 7 you have option to get your desktop wallpaper changed automatically after specified time. You are not allowed to reproduce or share content found on this site without proper permission. As the support page from Google says, the two-year period begins when you upload the first photo or video from the Moto G4 Plus to Google Photos, and not from the date of purchase. Since the Moto G4 is yet to go on sale, it remains unclear if Motorola will also be bundling free unlimited storage space on Google Photos with that handset. Every account gets 15 GB of free space, which is shared across your Gmail, Google Drive, and Google+ Photos.
The overview will give you some idea of which service you need to look at to start freeing up space. Email attachments can be a big culprit, but stored email messages themselves also take up space. Gmail will automatically delete emails from the trash after 30 days, but you’ll want to empty your trash immediately if you need the space right now. To do so, simply right-click the document in your Google Drive, point to Open with, and select the Google Docs application. Google Drive will sort your files by the amount of storage space they consume, allowing you to delete the biggest ones you don’t want. Google will do this automatically every 30 days, but you’ll want to empty it immediately if you need the space right now.
If you’ve been editing a file, you may have previous versions sucking up your storage space. There’s also no way to delete revisions for multiple files at once, so this may take you a while.
If this option isn’t checked, photos you upload via your browser will be automatically shrunk and consume no storage space. If you’d rather the app shrunk photos to the standard size first so they can be stored for free, open the Google+ app on your phone, go into Settings, tap Auto Backup , and tap the Photo size option. Google doesn’t provide a very good way to do this online, but if you want to shrink your photos, you could always download all your Google+ photos, locate the ones that are too large in size and shrink them. The $249 Samsung Series 3 Chromebook offers an extra 100 GB of space for two years, which would cost you $120 alone. Google offers a variety of choices, from 100 GB at $5 per month all the way up to 16 TB at $800 per month.
I think i remember an earlier article about different providers of on line storage, maybe you could do a search on this site. It takes just a matter of moments, but as a reward for your time, you can bag yourself some extra space.
And now, Google has just beefed up its own cloud storage by launching the brand new Google Drive service, as rumored. They quickly removed the original post, but not before Gerwin Sturm saved a copy and posted a translated version on his Google+ profile.
Desktop apps detect whatever gets thrown inside the Google Drive folder on your machine and sync files with the cloud, mobile apps and the web version of Google Drive, also automatically syncing any changes made to the files inside the special folder. The storage upgrade page is available here, providing a handy overview of your use of Drive, Gmail and Picasa storage. It also features image recognition and Google’s trademark search capabilities are deeply integrated into its bowels. The company notes that this technology is still in its early stages, but they expect it to get better over time.

You can attach photos from Drive to posts in Google+, and soon you’ll be able to attach stuff from Drive directly to emails in Gmail.
Note that Google is still offering paid upgrades for your cloud storage shared across Gmail, Picasa Web Albums and Docs. Currently, these paid tiers are available in 20 GB, 80 GB, 200 GB, 400 GB or 1 TB flavors, priced at $5, $20, $50, $100 or $256 per year, respectively.
As this experience becomes more seamless, separate storage doesna€™t make as much sense anymore. Now you can use available 15 GB for Gmail, Drive or for Google+ photos with no specific limits to any of these. Now I am thinking about moving my files back to Google Drive because of 15 GB storage for free.
At the launch event, the company highlighted the camera, battery life, and other launch offers that it is bundling with the handset.
For example, maybe you’re a heavy Gmail user but light on photos, or perhaps you were bumping up against your Drive storage limit but were only using 2 GB in Gmail. We’ve covered a variety of ways to free up space in Gmail, from searching for emails with attachments to using an IMAP client like Thunderbird that will display exactly how much storage space each email is taking up in Gmail.
Google Docs will create a new copy of that file in Google Docs format, allowing you to erase the original file. After deleting the originals from your Google+ photo albums, you could re-upload the shrinked copies and store them for free. If you have your eye on a Chromebook anyway and want more storage space, this can be a good deal.
To celebrate the day, Google is offering up 2GB of added free Google Drive storage to users that go through the process of reviewing the security measures that are put in place on their accounts. Shortly thereafter, Google officially published the post as it formally launched Google Drive. Drive is also an open platform, so we’re working with many third-party developers so you can do things like send faxes, edit videos and create website mockups directly from Drive. Note that some may still be cached by the Photos application afterwards, but that the majority won't show up anymore in the app.Users may also receive an Assistant card if they have selected to back up photos in high quality (reduced quality) when the storage space of their device runs low.
So instead of having 10 GB for Gmail and another 5 GB for Drive and Google+ Photos, youa€™ll now get 15 GB of unified storage for free to use as you like between Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos.With this new combined storage space, you wona€™t have to worry about how much youa€™re storing and where. However, the company seems to to have forgotten to mention that it is also offering free storage on Google Photos for 2 years with the handset. All images, logos and trademarks used on this site are property of their respective owners.
And finally, the security checkup lets you quickly see which apps, websites, and devices connected to your account have this or that permission access.All of these are good things to check regularly, so consider bookmarking the checkup page when you're done. To install these apps, visit the Chrome Web Store—and look out for even more useful apps in the future.
This was previously only the case when original quality was selected.The Google Photos web application offers another welcome change, as it provides you with options now to convert all original photos stored by the service to high quality. Answer to your question is that Google just merged storage between Drive, Gmail and Google+ photos.
Google has deprecated security questions as a form of recovery after finding them to be not very secure. A quick hover over the section where your storage is displayed will show you how much storage G-Mail, Drive, and Photos each take up. The latest updates rolled out by Google, "will help you more easily put things where they belong", Biran said. Reply Martin Brinkmann November 22, 2015 at 9:31 am # I don't think there is such an option.
Reply Lindsay July 20, 2016 at 4:38 am # Hello, I don't see this option from Google Photos settings.
