In this article, we will see how to check Gmail account storage in 5 Easy Steps. Now a days almost everyone is having a Gmail account which is not just used for email purposes but for taking external devices backup and for number of other purposes. But there is one very frequent problem that we always encounter is the filling of Gmail account storage space. Gmail would send you storage alerts if you cross certain threshold value. If you are using the free plan then the maximum storage you could have is 15GB. While this is still a lot of space but for someone like me who uses Gmail for multiple things, this space might not be enough.
So to deal with this problem, you have two solutions - either you buy a storage plan to get some extra storage or free some space from your current storage. If you decide to do clean up and free some space from your current storage then the next question is how you will track the freed up storage. Well, this can be done in very simple and easy steps as explained below.
