GOOGLE INCREASED STORAGE.
« on: 05. March 2015., 08:27:50 »
Hello,

Anyone Who Looks At My UserName Knows I Am A GOOGLE Proud "Customer" ( I Have Rants About CHROME, But That Is A Discussion For Another Day ).

Until A Few Hours Ago, I Had The Free 15GB Account, Now GOOGLE Has Increased It By 2GB.

Can Anyone Confirm That ?

Cheers.

It's still 15GB on all of my accounts... :(

That's probably something related to Devvie's Topic here: http://scforum.info/index.php/topic,9831.0.html

I Do Not Know Why They Gave Me The Extra 2GB, But It Was Not For The ( B ) Reason.

In The Last Few Weeks My Storage Quota Reached 96%, And I Had To Delete Forever All My Mails Before 2013.

I Have More Than Half A Million Mails In GMAIL, Now.

Everyone Gives You More Storage For Free, If You Do Something I Do Not Give A Crap About:

A - M$ Gives You 100GB If You Use B$NG,
- Not Even If They Payed Me,
- GOOGLE Is Better Than All The Other Search Engines Combined, Period,

B - GOOGLE Gives You 2GB If You Use Double Sign Up,
- I Am Not Giving GOOGLE My Phone Number, Or Anyone Else For That Matter,
- Forget About It,

C - DROPBOX Gives You 1GB If You Use Locally Their Crappy Software To Get "In Charge" Of Your Cloud Backups,
- No Thank You,
- I Use More Than 1 Hundred Free Cloud Backup Services, But All My Backups Are Done Manually,
- If I "Switch Hands", I Only Have To Find A Mirror To Look The Culprit In The Eye, Period.

Thank You For Responding.

EDIT:

It Was For The ( B ) Reason - I Just Got An Email From GOOGLE.

I Browsed The New Securities Policies And They Thought I Gave Them The Information They Wanted - My Phone Number - I Did Not.

They Have A Bug In Their Programming And I Got 2GB Free Because Of It - AHA.

Cheers.

However, you will "quickly" need to seek a new solution... 2GB "isn't enough" for your needs. ;)

By the way, here is an interesting article from LH - "How to Maximize Your Free Storage Space on Every Cloud Service": http://lifehacker.com/how-to-maximize-your-free-storage-space-on-every-cloud-1690775421

Whenever I Need Space I Delete 1 Entire Year Of Emails.

If An Email Is Too Important, I Import It Inside OUTLOOK 2003 ( Remember ? ), And Save It Locally In A File With The .MSG Format - No Problem.

Thank You For The Link.

To Get Again An Extra Free 2GB Of GOOGLE Storage, Do A Security Checkup On Your Account ( You Do Not Need To Change Anything, Just Follow The Links ).

15GB Initially + 2GB When I Started This Thread + 2GB Now = 19GB For Me.

Is GOOGLE Doing This Every Single WINTER ? - Well, We Will Know In 12 Months, Or So.

Cheers.

How should this work? I logged in through the link, but did not see anything regarding extra storage? Please advise, in non-capped words ;p

The Freebie Deadline Date Is Over.

Perhaps In 12 Months GOOGLE Will Do It For A Third Time ?
