How to free up space in the Google cloud (so that you can store more photos and videos)

From June 1, 2021, the Google Photos service will cease to be unlimited. By default, only 15 GB of free space will remain in it, and this quota will be shared with other Google services, where various files are stored (for example, Gmail and “Docs”). Photos and videos that you upload to Google Photos before June 1 will not be counted, that is, their size will not be deducted from the total limit.

With a Google One subscription, you can increase your Google Drive cloud storage for a fee:

  • 100 GB – 139 rubles per month or 1390 rubles per year
  • 200 GB – 219 rubles per month or 2190 rubles per year
  • 2 TB – 699 rubles per month or 6990 rubles per year

Even 15 gigabytes can be quite enough for storing an amateur archive, especially considering that Google Photos compresses files to save space. But it is possible that mail and documents have already “eaten” a significant part of your free space, in this case it makes sense to delete unnecessary files. How to do it?

Open the section “Storage Management” on the Google website – there you will see how much space is taken up by emails in the trash, spam and emails with large attachments in mail, deleted files and large files in Google Drive, as well as photos and videos of large size or in unsupported formats in ” Google Photos ”. There you can inspect these files and delete them, freeing up space in the cloud.

It also makes sense to open the Google Photos settings and see in what quality your files are saved – compressed or original. Files in their original size are taking up space in the cloud now, and files with reduced quality can be uploaded to Google Photos without limit. Since June 1, the rules have changed: all files will take up space, but the compressed files will fit much more for an obvious reason.
