Google Drive – Buying additional storage

Background

Emails to a close friend has been bouncing back.

Thankfully he himself brought it up.

He said his Google gmail account is full.

He furthered that he tried to clean it up a bit, but he did not make a dent.

And, so he stated that he went ahead and created a new email account.

Additional Storage

Buy new Storage?

I asked him whether he is amenable to buying new storage.  He said Yes, but he wasn’t quite sure how to.

I told him I will help him research how to do so.

I have had plenty of my own research these last few weeks.
