Space available in basic account

I am paying for a personal account and am only using 4.67 GB out of 3 TB.  I'm considering going back to Basic and need to know what the size limit is in Basic.  Help, please.

You mentioned that you have 3TB of storage. That amount of storage is typically only available in business accounts, or if you were granfathered into one of the OLD plans from years ago. In either case, compare what you're paying now to what the current costs are for personal accounts ($9.99/$99 for 1TB or $19.99/$199 for 2TB). You may be able to downgrade and save some money.

Hey @KEB66,

 

The basic free account comes with 2GBs.

Hi KEB66,

You will definitely be underwhelmed if you downgrade. The basic account comes with 2 GB of storage, which is several orders of magnitude lower than your current plan.

You can earn additional space however it is capped at 16 GB.

I hope this answers your question.

Thanks for your responses.  Guess I'll stick with the Personal level.
