Google accounts now use a shared pool of storage. Every account gets 15 GB of free space, which is shared across your Gmail, Google Drive, and Google+ Photos. But certain types of files don’t count towards your storage quota.
All interesting stuff but it would be good if you could spread the info round about other servers apart from just Google. Not everyone is sucked into the Google basket.
Then they would have to rename the title of the article. I think i remember an earlier article about different providers of on line storage, maybe you could do a search on this site.
You in fact can search by size from within Gmail.
into the searchbar and it will show you all messages that are 10mb or larger
I wish to know when I save my gmail attachments in Google drive, and don't delete that mail in gmail itself, would that file occupy 2 times storage (i.e. if the file is of 1 mb, will it occupy 2MBs- 1mb in gmail and another G Drive?).
2nd, In any case, after I save the attachment in G Drive, will I be able to search that mail in future and open that attachment from the mail itself?
