Marked as ‘read’ does not mean that you get rid of the email you received. It is all the same eats often required space, only now in a different section. Lets see how to get rid of the junk in your mailbox, the other to optimize the contents of the Google ecosystem products and refuse from additional spending on advanced account in the cloud.
By default, Google allocates 15 GB of storage. This unified memory space, which means that in addition to messages, it uses pictures, documents and everything that you have ever been associated with a Gmail account.
Armed with the information
To begin with we shall understand how much free space is left and how busy the rest of gigabytes. Learn it’s pretty easy: Statistics can be found in the lower left corner of the mailbox. By clicking on the “Control” opens the list of expansion packs for emergencies.
This is the easiest way to solve the problem of lack of space, but if you are afraid that the $ 2 per month for 100 GB did not justify itself, there are several free ways to optimize your Google Account private space. About them today and I’ll tell you.
We find benefits in standard categories
Gmail your default can sort the messages in a few standard categories. To see them and know what they are accountable, click on the gear in the top right corner and select the tab “Folder” Inbox “. For a start it would be nice to clean the “Promotions” section.
There are going to mostly promotional mailing, which you may not even be in charge. Moreover, they are often abundant pictures, and therefore take a lot of space. Transfer the desired letter in this section and note the other by pressing the “All” from the context menu checkbox in the top left corner. They can be immediately sent to the Recycle Bin.
Okay, to fight the manner described above with spamming is how to chop off the head Hydra: one will be more in its place. A more effective way – to remove your email address from all the promotional lists. This can be done the old fashioned way, by clicking on the Unsubscribe link at the end of the advertising message, or if you have Android-smartphone, click on the eponymous element of the list of options indicated by the vertical ellipsis.
But the move each time to an external web page where you want to enter the e-mail address, and sometimes specifically to go in and dig into the settings – a grueling task. There is a version easier, because Google allows you to block senders. Open the e-mail that you are tired of, and in the drop-down menu to the right, select the “Block Sender”.
This does not relieve you of getting the letters, but now they will fall into the “Spam” section, where it will be deleted after 30 days.
Google remembers everything
Notes from the iPhone and even Gchat, which you may have used for the last time so long ago that have forgotten – everything is forever stored in your account. In the left column under the button create a form letter, click “More” and go over the contents of the list box. Pay special attention to “Notes” and “Chatham”.
Getting rid of excess weight
You may not remember this, but for all the time using Gmail you probably have accumulated letters that exceed reasonable limits. It is unlikely that you want to keep them stored.
Find help them search string, which when you click on the triangle “Show Search Options” opens in the extended version, which set the filters, keywords, sender, recipient, and, most importantly, size. By the way, I immediately got rid of a dozen posts, which occupied more than 20 megabytes.
We carry out an audit of Google Drive, and Photos
Since Google Account overall space, galleries optimization will free up space for the mail. Therefore, if you use Photos to back up your images, we strongly recommend that in the settings select “high quality” instead of “Original Size.”
In this case, you get unlimited storage space for a little compressed, but virtually identical in quality photos.
