Having enough data space is the most critical issue our office is having right now.
.In addition to cleaning out existing files, you should tackle one practice that causes them to pile up in the first place: automatic backups. Drive’s Backup and Sync tool will upload and sync certain computer files to the cloud, and while you should definitely back up your files, you needn’t store all of them online. To check which folders Drive is backing up automatically, head to your computer’s settings: On a Windows machine, go to the notification area and click the Drive icon; on macOS, look for the Drive icon on the right side of the menu bar. Next, click the menu button (three vertical dots) and select Preferences. A screen will pop up to show you which folders are syncing to Google Drive. If you see folders that don’t necessarily need cloud backups—particularly ones that take up a lot of room (the size of each folder appears on its right)—then untick the boxes next to them.
