Google: Free up storage space in 3 simple steps!

(you can always filter previous editions by application!)

How much space do I have right now?

Did you know that your Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Photos share storage space?

3 Steps to Free up your Google storage

Step 1 - Click this link (https://drive.google.com/drive/quota) to sort your Google Drive files by size, and delete files you haven’t used in the last 3 years

Step 2 - Check how much storage space your photos are taking up (https://photos.google.com/quotamanagement), and scroll down to the “Review and delete” section

Step 3 - Search your Gmail for emails larger than 10MB, and delete the ones you know you won’t need anymore

Pro tip: The largest emails are usually the ones with attachments, so you can also search for all emails with attachments
