    Does everyone pay for cloud storage - just had bill for £6.99 / month as wife has too many pics. Just a general question as this seems excessive.

    Nope don’t use it except for backing up core system bits. Photos and everything else I use a local storage device.

    No. Get a certain amount free with BT and use about 15% of my allowance.

    Google were crafty with this type of ploy/ scam.
    If you use Googledrive as part of work they give you unlimited but as a private punter only 15gb.
    After leaving that employment I started getting messages saying my Gdrive was full and for £x /mth I could purchase further space.
    I found this a bit strange as I'd dumped or backed up most stuff to an external hard drive.
    So I spent a morning going through to see what was what. The Gmail was taking up very little space but I deleted some video attachments as they were large.
    Gained very little.
    The breakthrough was when I discovered further folders with work related slow mo videos from like 10 - 12 years ago. These were now of no use to me whatsoever so once I'd watched a few hours worth :confused: to check, I binned them o_O.
    Suddenly my personal occupied Gdrive halved :blush:

    I'd suggest you get the Wife or whoever to review the files saved as there may be a lot of clutter which is unwanted by yourselves but naturally welcomed by the Cloud providers!
