How do you explain the same answer everyone gets when they go to find out how much storage they are using and how will it will be affected after June 1? No matter how much they have in storage, the different ones I have talked to say they get the same answer as you show in your PowerPoint slide shows. I had .9 MB on mine before I upgraded to their 100GB and I had gotten the same answer. I am having a Zoom session on this with our Shepherd Center group next week. With this group, I am sure someone will ask that question.

Google’s response:

We estimate your 100 GB of storage will last more than 4 years
This is your personal estimate, starting from today, based on how often you back up content to your Google Account. After that, you’ll still have options to manage or get more storage.

I do have a different message now on mine, so it does change. I’m sure they are giving¬† a very rough estimate. Good luck with your meeting.

We estimate your 102 GB of storage will last about 1 year

Thanks, you just might have to move up to 1TB before long. I am using the slide show you used and giving you all the credit at the beginning.
