Google Quota Reminder

Don't forget to check your Drive's storage! One May 22, 2024 we will be turning on quotas in Google Drive. If you are over quota, you will still be able to send and receive emails, but you will not be able to create new files or add new ones to your Google Drive. However, you will retain the ability to view your files and will still be able to move files out of Drive. 

You can view how much storage will be available to you here

For more information, read our news article about the quotas.
