Google will delete your files from Gmail, Drive and Photos if you exceed the storage limit or are inactive for two years

Google has made major changes to the storage policy for user accounts that use Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Photos. Since all these services share storage space, the company has decided to implement new measures for accounts that go over the limit or those that are inactive for a long time.

Beginning June 21, 2021, Google will be able to delete your Gmail, Photos, or Drive content (including Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Forms, and Jamboards files) if you exceed the storage limit or are inactive for two years.

Google Storage Delete Files

The new policies will apply as of June 1, 2023, that is, 24 months after they come into effect as a new rule. So if you have an account for any Google product that you haven't used in a long time and you don't want to lose the content stored there, you need to log in at least once.

If you are inactive for 2 years (24 months) in Gmail, Drive or Photos, we can remove the content of products in which you do not perform any activity. Google One subscribers who do not exceed their storage quota and whose account is in good health will not be affected by this new inactivity policy.

Beginning June 1, 2021, if you are inactive or exceed the storage limit, Google will send you to email notifications and reminders in advance and before removing any content.

Even if your content is deleted or you spend more than that time inactive, you can still log in to your account. This storage quota and inactivity policies will only apply to private users of Google services.

Another "goodness" of the storage of Google accounts that ends.

This does not apply to Google Workspace, G Suite for Educational Centers, or G Suite for Nonprofits. You can manage your Google storage space from this link.

Google's storage policies are undergoing more than one significant change, remember that from June 2021 Google Photos and Google Docs will stop offering unlimited free storage, and Drive began to automatically delete files from the trash. The company says it is simply " adjusting to standard industry practices ." Basically, what was given is over.
