7 Ways To Store More in Your Cloud - Carol Evenson - Blog

7 Ways To Store More in Your Cloud

The cloud is a convenient way for users to store information that can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection on multiple devices. Many services come with free cloud storage, but space is limited and may fill up faster than many users think. These tips can help you better utilize your cloud storage.


  1. Figure Out What Is Taking Up Space

If you are running low on cloud storage, the first step to take is to figure out what you are storing that is using up your allotted space. Cloud management software, such as terraform software, may be useful in some cases. Check your storage management screen to determine what types of files are taking up the most space in your cloud. For many users, images, backups, videos and music files are the largest space hogs. If you are using apps from the cloud, these can also take up a lot of space. Free up space by deleting files you don't need. If you have some old backups sitting around, delete those first. Next, look for apps that you no longer use. If you are still running short on space, check for duplicate files you can delete and consider compressing images and music files.

  1. Delete Email Attachments

Emails that only contain text do not take up a lot of space individually; however, if you have allowed thousands to accumulate, they can add up. If you don't have a reason to store your emails, delete them. Particularly, look for emails that have attached files. These can take up a lot more space than regular emails. 


  1. Remove Clutter

Services such as iCloud Drive and Google Drive can quickly fill up with random copies of PDFs, documents and application files that you may not even realize are being stored on the cloud. Delete anything you do not have a reason to keep. 


  1. Delete Old Messages

If you have been backing up your text messages and iChat threads to the cloud, these messages can take up a lot of space over time. This is particularly true if your messages contain many photos or emojis. Delete your old messages to free up some space.


  1. Curate Your Photos

Modern digital cameras take high-quality photos that create big files that can use up a lot of storage space. Chances are, not every photo in your cloud is a gem. Some might even be accidental screenshots or other photos you never meant to take. Search through your photos and videos and delete the ones that aren't keepers. If you are storing long videos, consider cropping them to clips of just the good stuff and discarding the rest. Once you are done weeding out the photos and videos you don't want, make sure you delete them permanently from the trash to free up storage space.


  1. Empty the Trash

With most cloud services when you delete something, it doesn't usually get immediately permanently deleted. Instead, it is transferred to your trash so that if you made a mistake or changed your mind, you can restore it. If you are needing to free up space, then emptying the trash is essential. Otherwise, all of the work you did to clear out clutter won't pay off.


  1. Turn Off Automatic Sync

Automatic sync functions can be useful if you are using the same apps and files on multiple devices. However, they can also lead to storing a lot of information that you may not necessarily need to store in the cloud. If you are constantly running out of space, consider turning this feature off and manually storing the files you want to put in the cloud. 


Heavy users of cloud storage may eventually have to purchase more space. However, before you upgrade your account, clean out the clutter. You may find that you have plenty of space for the apps, data and other files you need to store once you get rid of everything you aren't using.
