Google Drive Introduced File Creating Limit for all Users

    Google has put a limit on how many files you can save and create in Drive, . This was reported, Google that Drive can hold a maximum number of 5,000,000 files, even if you purchase extra storage.

    The 5 million file limit does not apply to all files uploaded to your drive. As long as the files are not created solely by you, you can have more than 5 million files in your system.

    Ross Richendrfer, a spokesperson for Google, stated that the change is necessary to “maintain strong performances and reliability” and prevent “misuses” of company systems. Richendrfer states that if you exceed the limit, you will receive a notification. You can also contact Google support to resolve the problem.

    Google did not notify those who were affected by the new limit before it was implemented

    Although 5 million files may seem overwhelming for one person to upload it is actually not uncommon for some users. A Reddit post by ArsTechnica and CNET shows that a user who has 7 million files in Drive claims that Google stopped them from creating new files in February, even though they have not exceeded the 2TB storage limit. Many other users of Google’s issue tracker claim they encountered the file limit around the same period and initially believed it was a bug.

    Reddit’s post explains that a user with 2TB storage and a file size of over 400KB will hit their file limit before running out of storage space. This means that some users might be paying more storage than they actually need if they choose to compress their files into zip-files.

    Users’ comments indicate that Google did not notify those who were affected by the new limit before it was implemented. This left them scrambling for files to be moved or compressed once it became effective. It also doesn’t look like Google updated its Google One or Workspace support pages to note the cap, either, although it does state that
