I hope this excellent news finds you well.
Google Workspace for Education Fundamentals (formerly G Suite for Education) will implement a new storage policy in July 2022, and all G Suite accounts in schools and universities will be affected.
And I'm sorry to tell you that we don't have unlimited storage anymore. Google has changed its policy; there is no longer unlimited storage for everyone with Education Domain (.edu) or Google Workspace for Education accounts. Only the Google Enterprise edition and Google Workspace for Nonprofits are excluded from the new Google policy, meaning this edition will remain unlimited storage. So, all Google Drive, Google Photos, Gmail Storage, Shared/Team drives connected to Google Workspace for Education that exceeds the storage limit are likely to be deleted by Google or the Super Admin who has control of the domain.
Please consider planning the follow-up data backup and migration of your files; because under the new Google policy, the storage limit they enforce is 100 TB OF POOLED STORAGE SHARED ACROSS ALL USERS. The new storage policy will affect customers with any Google Workspace for Education edition in July 2022. There is a high possibility of massive deleting of drives and files if you exceed the storage limit. Other schools and universities have already started implementing the new Google policy. If your account is subject to this policy change, we can do nothing right now but accept the terror and unfortunate truth. But as I said before, it is clear from my understanding that the Google Enterprise edition and Google Workspace for Nonprofits excluded from the new Google policy will remain unlimited storage.
I hoped it helped!
