Google Apps Storage

Each user is given 30Gb of storage for Google Apps (Google Drive, Gmail, and Google+ Photos, etc.).  If you are approaching your limit or if you've run out of storage, you can buy addition storage at your expense or free up storage space.

Check your storage

You can see your storage usage and limit at the bottom of any Gmail page and at the bottom left corner of Drive on the web. You can also go to www.google.com/settings/storage to see how you’re using your storage across Google Apps.
