Get Extra Gmail And Picasa Storage Real Cheap

Need some extra space for your gigantic Gmail habit, or to stash more pics in Picasa Web Albums? Google took a knife to its extra storage prices offering, for example, 80GB for $US20 per year.

At the bottom end, 20GB goes for $US5 per year, or a bit over $US0.41 per month. Want to get crazy with it? A terabyte runs $US512 per year, and 16 terabytes tops the list at $US4096. The extra space is officially shared between Gmail and Picasa Web albums, but, as Google Operating System suggests, it might be a preemptive step toward making the expected, anticipated "GDrive" storage space a real thing.

If you've already bought extra Google apps space, your account should see an automatic space boost for the remainder of your year's purchase to match the new prices. Does this kind of cheap space make you consider moving your pictures to Picasa, or investing a bit more in Google as a storage platform?

    Yes.

    Photos are the only files I _really_ care about having backed up off-site. Until now I've just cut DVDs to give to family. But I think it's time I do it properly.
