Google has a limit of 15 GB storage space per account for consumer (free) accounts. Is there a simple procedure to visualize how the 15GB is used (photos, videos, email, documents)? Ideally, there would be a pie chart and a list of the biggest files.

The goal is to quickly understand which files are taking up the most space.

  • The 15GB limit refers to free accounts.

  • I was having the same question, but now it occurred to me that google wants us to pay for space, so they probably don't want to spend money helping us use less of it...

There used to be a pie chart like this, however now it looks different:


  • This doesn't show which files are taking the most of the storage space.

Google is transforming how they are informing users how their information is being handled. As today, March 1st., 2010, on https://myaccount.google.com/data-and-personalization we could find widget showing the total storage space used but to find which files are the largest we should go to each of the three apps that use that space: Gmail, Google Drive and Google Photos.

  • On Gmail use use the search operator larger followed by a size, i.e. larger:24mb
  • On Google Drive
  • On Google Photos, I'm not sure if this could be done on the web app.

You can visit https://drive.google.com/u/2/settings/storage and login through the Gmail account for which you need to get the details.
