Are you running out of hard drive space? All your photos, movies, music, documents and programs have your disks bursting at the seams? It could be time to start migrating to the cloud, but you don't get enough for free and you don't want to monthly fees for space. If you're a student or teacher, you're in luck.
That's because Google is now giving away truly unlimited storage space on its Google Drive cloud servers - but only to students and teachers. To qualify, you'll need to attend or work for a school using Google's Apps for Education. It's a completely free suite of online apps and resources.
If you're one of the 30 million students and teachers who have this program available, you get the free storage space automatically. You can also upload a single file with a size of up to five terabytes. That's one gigantic file!
As I said, even if you are a student or educator, you must attend or work for a school using Google Apps for Education. Major universities like Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, University of Michigan and my alma mater, Arizona State University, are all using it. More than 500 public schools and school districts in the United States are also using Apps for Education.
You'll have to contact your school's administrators to find out if you or your students will be getting this insane amount of storage space. Check out this video to find out more about Apps for Education:
