Google Drive Storage Limits
I am a big user of Google Docs and Google Drive, but one thing I worry about is how much storage do I get, and hitting the limits of that storage. I did a little looking on the Google Drive FAQ and found something interesting out. The following is from the FAQ regarding storage limits.
Each user gets 5 GB free storage and additional storage can be purchased. Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides do not count toward storage quotas.
The maximum individual file size that can be synced in Google Drive is 10 GB for files that aren’t converted to Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. (Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides have different size limits.)
So what this means is that every user gets 5GB of storage in their Google Drive, however Google Docs do not count against this quota. Meaning, if you are like me, and mostly use Google Drive for Google Docs, storage is not a real issue unless you start getting into really large files. However if you put a lot of other files, such as pictures, videos, PDFs, etc in your Google Drive you will use up your 5GB storage a lot faster. Kind of a nice perk for those of us who are big users of Google Docs.
