How to reduce Google Storage

Personal Data Storage Options

In addition to your LC Google account, as a student, you have freedom to choose where to store your personal files. Below, you will find a number of cloud and offline storage suggestions for both free and paid storage. Keep in mind that these are not all the cloud storage providers. As a student, you may also have access to special student discounts, while you are enrolled.

Computer Backup Suggestions

A good way to ensure your data is backed up and protected is to utilize a native backup solution for your computer. These backups should backup to a source that is equal to or larger than your computer’s storage capacity. After picking an external drive to backup to, we recommend utilizing one of these utilities for a daily or weekly backup.

Google Takeout - Graduation

Your LC Google account will remain active for 1 year after graduation. We recommend using Google Takeout to move your data from your LC account to a personal account after graduation. Visit to review the data you can move out of your LC account. You can move your data to a personal Google account, Dropbox, OneDrive, Box, or download the data locally. This process can take up to a week to compile as an export, so we suggest starting this process with sufficient time.
