All Google accounts come with 15GB of free storage, so that you can keep your data stored on Google.
Gmail, Google Images, Google Drive, and Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides all share the 15GB of storage. If you’re heavily invested in Google’s ecosystem, your free disc space can quickly fill up unless you take care of it by removing unused files, emails, and so on.
You won’t be able to send/receive emails, install files, or generate a document until your free storage space is complete. But, if you’re nervous about your Google account storage space and want to know how to free it up, keep reading. Here’s our in-depth look at it.
- Clean up your Gmail account.
2.The first thing you can do is clear up the garbage in your Gmail inbox. Any email takes up space, and it takes up still more when it has an attachment.
- Important emails are not a concern, but bulk-deleting emails that have been sitting in the Promotions, Social, and Spam tabs for a long time might be a good idea.
- Go to each of the Promotions, Social, or Spam sections -> -> Pick everything -> Press the trash can icon.
- The disadvantage of this approach is that you might want to hold some emails. Fortunately, there is also a workaround for that.
6.Simply describe the email addresses from which you often accept promotional messages. Then copy and paste the email address into the search bar, and uninstall all at once.
- Remove the debris by doing the same thing with other IDs.
Another good method is to search the mails by their file size and then delete them one-by-one. But this method is most effective when the concern is freeing up storage space.
Once you’ve deleted all of the addresses, go to Trash and uninstall everything to free up disc space. You should even double-check your job here before permanently removing the emails.
Clean up the Driveway
Gmail isn’t the only thing that takes up the 15GB limit; whether you upload a lot of files and documents to it, or backup Google Images in high quality, Google Drive can be a storage hog.
Delete files depending on how much disc capacity they use up. To do so, go to Google Drive on your desktop and select the Storage option. Select the files in ascending order and begin removing the ones you don’t use.
Many of the files that have been removed will be transferred to the Garbage folder. Enable it to sit for at least 24 hours. If you need more storage space right now, go to Trash and pick Empty Trash.
