Google plans to double Gmail capacity


Recommended Posts

[M]
It is gonna stop at 2075mb probably, and google will manually add storage on, as if you put your system clock a year forward it says 2075 megabytes (and counting).

God this 2050mb -> 2075mb is awkward when you know what its gonna be :(

WinRAR, multi-part RAR file, limit file size. Break a 700 meg file into 70 emails ;)

Who really needs to email 700mb files? If your gonna be transferring something that large, you'd be best hosting it. Same with something 100mb in size.

This mainly seems like people asking for gmail to be an online drive, which, although possible to do with the extension, gmail isnt gstorage. yet . . .

I used the google suggest thing.. everyone suggest a higher attachment limit on https://services.google.com/inquiry/gmail_suggest/ :) if we get enough people saying it, it will happen. im not asking for something too dramatic like 1gb, maybe 100mb? I think that's fair! don't you? :) :cool:

You can install Gmail Drive on every computer and access your storage space.

You are currently using 101 MB (5%) of your 2050 MB.

100MB attachment is too much to ask from Gmail, an email provider not a host site.

20MB is more realistic and has a much higher chance of getting approved.

Just wondering what this bit is about 10MB limits on attachments. I had no idea there was a limit, and I posted to myself a 15MB powerpoint presentation, and it handled it fine! :rofl:

The problem with having a very large attachment size is the uploading time. Imagine uploading a 100MB file, that would be ridiculous and there are implications such as timeouts and what not.

even with the current storage , gmail is so much better than yahoo & hotmail , making it bottomless would just make them the best .

I had that problem using webmail on dialup... it'd be nearly there then the connection would timeout :(
