Do you have a link to an ad selling one so I can give it a bash. I don't just want to go buy something then it's a fake ad.For those that want to give this a try you can buy a once off Team/Shared drive from ebay. They go for about $1 or ~R15 each once off. Some very clever people are selling these. Team/Shared drives are unlimited drives that can be added to any existing gmail address. These drives do not extend current drive storage of 15GB so they don't count for photo storage ect.
They have a 400 000 files limit, 750GB upload limit per day, 10TB download limit per day and unlimited file storage space. They have a 5TB per file size limit.
Very useful if you want to free up some space. They can be mounted in windows or linux with rclone which is very nice.
The people selling them is adding you as a member then removing themselves from the drive leaving you as the only user and owner of the drive. You can add more users to the drive if you want. Very nice although I'm sure google will probably eventually clamp down on this loophole but well worth the R15 in my option as you don't need to get a domain name and links to current gmail address. R15 once off gives you 2 x Team/Shared drives so that is 800 000 files limit unlimited storage.
lol i also bought from that seller and it took 2 days to come through - used that as a trial before setting up my ownI ended up buying from this guy. Now I'm not so sure if it was a wise choice because in his ad he states I'll have the drive within 8 hours. I ordered last night already and still nothing - hell I'm not even sure how to check on Drive if I have access to it yet.
My idea was to give it a trial run before committing to my own drive and moving my private stuff.
My main reason is I sold my main PC so now I have the hard drive with all my kids' photos from birth lying in a cupboard. That and my laptop's SSD (240GB) is getting full. Initially I was thinking of getting a 1TB SSD, until I stumbled across this.
Yes, in fact I think I have one already because I'm using the Maps API.Are you looking at setting up your own G suite account?
If you're a G Suite Business subscriber (which is the case for many individuals who are just looking to get more benefits and fewer ads, even if they don't own a business), you have access to unlimited Drive storage for only $12 a month. While Google notes that plans with four or fewer individual users are only eligible for 1TB, our testing and a look around the web make clear that Google has never enforced this limit.
This is changing with Google Workspace. There's a hard limit of 2TB for individual Business users and 5TB per person on the new Business Plus plan. It's still plenty for most people, but at some point, you'll run into limitations.
