I'm getting the following error when I'm trying to add a new alert:

You have already subscribed to the maximum number of alerts. You must delete one of your current alerts before you can create this one. Dismiss

Is there any way of upgrading the limit? Or it's hardcoded by Google? Any workaround?

I'm already on paid 100GB plan. Would it change anything if I change to 1TB or 10TB plan?

Btw. I've already 1000 configured alerts.

  • By "100GB plan", do you mean a Google Drive storage plan? – Rubén Oct 9 '15 at 11:46
  • @Rubén Yes, I would expect to have some threshold increased by default. Or maybe having a business account would help? Unless the limits are hardcoded to whatever account you use. – kenorb Oct 9 '15 at 11:56

AFAIK there is no way to increase the maximum number of alerts for a given account.


  • Consolidate alerts (i.e. use the OR operator)
  • Use a second account.
