Gmail is speeding away from me…

Follow-up to Still catching up with gmail… from Steve's blog

It has been a while since I looked at my gmail stats. Two years ago I was using over 70% of the space allowed in a gmail account (then a little under 3GB), and although the storage allowance was increasing my usage of it was increasing more quickly. I was catching up.

Two years on, I’m down to 44% usage. I’ve got over a GB more stuff in there (3.2GB in total now) but the allowance has gone up to over 7GB. Gmail is pulling away again…

I guess storage is cheap, and Google now have a better idea of how its users use the storage allocation so they can afford to offer much more storage to people knowing that most won’t take advantage of it.
