4) Reminder: Google space quota

Dear all users

Referring to our announcement from 10 May 2021 on the subject of Google's storage limit, we would like to inform all of our users that due to limited space provided by Google to us, starting from 1 June 2022, we will limit the size of the total use of Google space from all apps (Google drive, Gmail, Photos, etc.) as follows:

1. Students: 30GB

2. Faculty/staff: 60GB

In the meantime, please arrange the use of your Google space accordingly. .If you still occupy Google space more than the allocated quota by the above mentioned date, some of your data/files will be lost.

Unfortunately, we found that most users have not adjusted the space occupation yet, and even some have increased the space occupancy. We urgently request those users to reduce the size of Google space occupancy below the limit mentioned above.

Please also refer to our announcement on 7 Feb 2022 regarding the availability of Microsoft's OneDrive Cloud Storage where each user of Office 365 can get up to 1TB space.
