Back in November, Google reported that Docs, Sheets, Slides, and other Workspace documents will tally toward storage caps. This is set to begin for personal accounts on June 1, however Workspace users will be given an expansion into 2022.
Google Workspace accounts, similar to free personal users, are as yet set to have their High-quality uploads in Google Photos count toward their Drive quota in June. There is no change to this milestone.
In any case, recently made Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Forms, or Jamboard files by Workspace clients will not count toward storage until February 1, 2022. In the interim, existing documents from those items will comparatively not count toward storage “unless they’re modified on or after February 1, 2022.” Google Keep and Sites remain excluded from these rules.
Administrators today can check the Apps use client report (General > Photos and Drive segments) for a “comprehensive look at storage usage” across their association. In any case, Google is chipping away at new space management tools.
This postponement is conceived out of waiting to make sure these “new admin tools to identify and manage how storage is used and allocated” are set up before the approach becomes effective.
They have chosen to defer the check of Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, Drawings, Forms, or Jamboard files count toward storage quotas until that tooling is set up.
