Google Storage Caps Begin June 1 for Accounts

The Association of Former Students May 5, 2022 1:57 PM updated: May 6, 2022 2:08 PM

The Association is reaching out regularly to all users of email accounts with updates about an upcoming change in Google policy that will end unlimited storage for Google Workspace for Education.

It’s imperative that you move or back up any files in your Google Drive before Aug. 1, 2022.

On June 1, 2022, adding new files to Google Drive will be disabled for accounts. You will still be able to access and download what is there until Aug. 1.

This is because of storage limits that Google will impose on The Association's Workspace for Education account, causing us to cap all accounts at 10 gigabytes of total storage beginning June 1.

For reference, you can find copies of all the correspondence we are sending about these changes at, going back to July 2021. An FAQ is also at this link.

As discussed in those updates, each user’s 10 gigabytes of storage will be limited to Gmail and Google Photos. Beginning Aug. 1, Google Drive will be fully disabled for all accounts and files left in your Google Drive may become unrecoverable at that point.

We believe these steps will enable our Aggie-branded email program to be sustainable for some time.
However, please understand that future circumstances or decisions made by Google could require the further reduction of storage space or removal of Google Photos from accounts down the road.

Additional updates will be sent out as more information becomes available.
