Re: Google Drive running out of storage space.


Most of the time I use the Gmail website. The rest of the time I use the native mail app for iOS.

I suspect that it is probably Google drive that is running out of space. I have had Gmail since at least 2005 and I always just archived everything. That was never a problem up until pretty recently when I started getting those messages.

Again, I’m not sure why am having that problem because I am only seeing one final left in my Google drive because I deleted many files several weeks ago when I saw this problem the first time. I will have to look for the trash folder in Google drive and try to clean it out as well. I cleaned out my trash folder in Gmail earlier today. I will see what happens the next time I’m near a computer.

Thank you,

Hi Victor. I am guessing it's your google drive. I have not had this message from GMail, and I have not deleted my emails dating from 2011, and many of my mail have file attachments like images and mp3s and things like that. Cheers!.

Hi everyone:

Lately I have been getting a message on my Gmail account informing me that I am running low on storage space. I’m getting this message when I go to the Gmail website. I think this might be referring to my Google drive but I’m not sure as I think there’s only one final left in my Google Drive right now. I got this message several months ago and I deleted many files from Google drive. I stopped getting that message for a long time when I did that.

There are many emails in my Gmail account because Gmail seems to be virtually unlimited. There are many emails that I have not bothered to delete. I know that Google Drive gives us 15 gigs of free storage. The message is telling me that I am almost at 15 gigs. I think we get much more storage in Gmail. What do you think is happening? Am I running out of storage on Gmail or Google drive? How can I solve this problem. How can I clear lots of storage in Gmail quickly without deleting a bunch of individual emails?
