Gmail has stopped its evergrowing email storage space.

What was the storage space counter at before the move to 15GB constant? (Doesn't have to be exact)

    Unless someone got a screen shot, I don't think this question is answerable. That value was generated via JavaScript and was a marketing gimmick more than anything.

According to the official announcement for the new sharing of storage, Gmail had a 10GB limit while Google+ Photos and Google Drive shared 5GB before the change. (Confirmed on this other blog post which shows a timeline where the Gmail upper limit was expanded to 10GB on or about April 24, 2012.)

Whether that's what was displayed in the "evergrowing counter" is unknown.
