Last I checked Google Drive deleted older versions of the same file automatically unless the Keep Forever option was turned on for the file. That's sensible, so old versions do not fill your GDrive.

Recently the Keep Forever option is On for me when I upload a new version of the same file, so I have to manually uncheck it every time.

Is this a bug or did google change the policy to keep all old files by default?

  • any luck on finding away to reverse the defualt?
