Google has lowered the price of its monthly storage plans to $1.99 for the 100GB plan (previously $4.99), $9.99 for 1TB (previously $49.99), and $99.99 for 10TB, with even more storage available if you need it. How big is a terabyte anyway? Well, that’s enough storage for you to take a selfie twice a day for the next 200 years!!! and still have room left over.
Like before, storage continues to work across Drive, Gmail and Google+ Photos. Of course, the first 15GB plan remains free when you sign up to a Google account. You can sign up for one of these new Google Drive plans at www.google.com/settings/storage. If you already pay for storage, you’ll automatically move to a better plan at no extra cost.

Some people have invested in larger hard drives while others prefer external storage devices like thumb drives or compact discs. The desperate ones might delete entire folders worth of old files in order to make space for new information. But some are choosing to rely on a growing trend: cloud storage. (more…)
