Google Workspace for Education

Notification of Capacity Restrictions on Google Drive, etc. (My Drive)

We are currently using the Google Workspace for Education service for educational institutions to provide storage services on Google Drive and other platforms. In alignment with changes to the storage policies made to Google Workspace for Education by Google, restrictions will now be placed on the use of the hereto unlimited storage space (data storage space for Google Drive and Keio University Mail, etc.). Since exceeding the overall capacity directly affects the use of the entire Keio University, a storage capacity limit, which should be unlimited, will be set for each user. If you have already exceeded the limit, please organize your files by the deadline so that they are under the limit.

Check the following notices for further information on announcements. Details will also be provided on checking the current capacities of drives, e-mail and other such data, as well as details on reorganizing data, etc. You are requested to refer to this.

Setting the Upper Limit for Shared Drives

Google Workspace, which you are currently using, is now required to set a maximum limit for "Shared Drive" due to a change in Google's specifications. (Notified by Google on 1/7)
In order to ensure that this does not interfere with the current usage, a temporary limit will be set uniformly for each shared drive.

  • Set Date and Time : Friday, 1/20 18:00
  • Tentative upper limit : 10TB

This is a temporary emergency measure, and we will provide further information on future settings and operational policies.
The provisional upper limit is subject to review and does not guarantee future available capacity.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.
