Changes to Google Storage Policy


Google has announced a change to their storage policy for Google Workspace for Education customers which includes the University of Akron. Effective July 2022, Google will be limiting the amount of storage available to the University for those who are using Google. To comply with this new requirement, we must reduce our current total storage usage on Google by approximately 80%. We are asking that you move whatever files and data you can from Google to Microsoft OneDrive before May 15, 2022.
