With the advancements in technology, storage solutions have undergone some significant upgrades. Hardware mediums like SD cards are now on the decline and the replacement is the digital alternative – CLoud storage. Every major tech company has now started cloud storage solutions of their own, but the most user friendly by far is Google Drive. Any user who has a Google account or an Android device is presented with 15GB of free Google Drive storage. You can place absolutely any type of the file in this cloud drive and if you start running out of space, Google offers expansion plans for really competitive prices.

However, if you are not into the whole paid plan scheme, the best solution for you to keep using the 15GB of storage space is to delete unwanted files from your Google Drive account to make space for newer files.
