Options for adding Drive storage
By default, each user with a Google Apps for Work account has 30 GB of storage available for uploaded Google Drive files, Gmail, and Google+ Photos. Users with the free edition of Google Apps (or consumer accounts) get 15 GB of storage.
If users need additional storage space, there are three options to increase their quota:
- If you're using Google Apps for Work and would like unlimited storage (or 1 TB per user with 4 or fewer users), you can upgrade to Google Apps Unlimited. Google Apps for Education also has unlimited storage (or 1 TB per user with 4 or fewer users).
- If you're a Google Apps for Work administrator, you can purchase Google Drive storage licenses for additional storage space and assign the licenses to specific users.
- Individual users can purchase more storage space for themselves (unless you turn off the Individual Storage service for your organization).
A user can have only one storage license of each type (administrator managed and individual storage). To change the amount of storage space for a user, remove the user's current license and assign a larger or smaller license. Storage licenses do not apply if you have unlimited storage with Google Apps Unlimited or Google Apps for Education.
The total space available to a user is the sum of the Google Drive storage licenses assigned to the user and any individual storage.
