How many folders can I create in Google Docs?

There is no limit to the number of folders you can create in Google Docs, but your Google Account storage space is limited. By default, every new Google user gets 15GB of cloud storage, shared between Gmail, Google Drive and Google Photos. Once this storage limit is reached, you will either need to delete some files or start transferring data to external flash drives or hard drives.

How do I get more storage space on Google Drive?

You can add additional storage to your Google Account by signing up for a Google One plan.

Currently, the Basic plan costs just $0.49 per month for the first three months, then $1.99 per month for the rest of the year (or $20 annually). The Basic plan includes 100GB of storage, VPN access, and other Google benefits.

If you want even more storage, there’s also the Premium plan, which is currently discounted to $2.49 per month for the first three months and then to $9.99 per month (or $100 per year) through the end of the year . At this tier, you not only get 2TB of storage (in addition to the same benefits as the Basic plan), but you can also share your subscription with up to five other users.
