Unlimited storage is being phased out

  • We will communicate with existing Google account holders about storage quotas prior to their taking effect
    • NOTE: Google made an unexpected change on February 1, 2023, by setting a default storage limit that did not previously exist.  This change has been reverted.
  • To address your shared drive storage quota, please submit a Cloud File Sharing Question or Request ticket

Drive is a good solution for:

  • Accessing your Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms from one place
  • Organizing your Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms into folders and sharing those folders with your collaborators
  • Sharing other kinds of files with limited numbers of collaborators

Shared Drives are shared spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device. Unlike in My Drive, files in Shared Drives belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done.
