If your Gmail account is almost out of storage, there are a few steps you can take to free up space and resolve the issue. Here are some suggestions:
Delete emails: One of the easiest ways to free up space in your Gmail account is to delete emails that you no longer need. You can do this by selecting the emails you want to delete and then clicking the “Trash” icon. Alternatively, you can use Gmail’s search function to find and delete emails that meet certain criteria, such as emails that are more than a certain age or emails with large attachments.
Use the “Archive” function: If you want to keep certain emails but don’t need them cluttering up your inbox, you can use the “Archive” function to remove them from your inbox. This will move the emails to the “All Mail” folder, which you can access at any time.
Remove attachments: Another way to free up space in your Gmail account is to remove attachments from emails. You can do this by clicking on the email to open it, and then right-clicking on the attachment and selecting “Save as” to save it to your computer. Once you have saved the attachment, you can delete the email to free up space.
Enable Gmail’s “Send and Archive” feature: This feature allows you to reply to an email and automatically archive the original email in one step. To enable this feature, go to the “General” tab in your Gmail settings and check the “Send and Archive” option.
Use Google Drive: If you have a lot of large attachments, you may want to consider using Google Drive to store them. Google Drive is a cloud storage service that is integrated with Gmail, and it offers 15 GB of storage for free. To use Google Drive, simply click the “Insert” button when composing an email and select “Google Drive” from the drop-down menu.
By following these steps, you should be able to free up space in your Gmail account and resolve the issue of being almost out of storage.
