As a google drive user, I have tons of files on my mobile device that I upload to my Google Drive but there is also a limit to the number or size of files I can upload to Google Drive in a day. Google Drive gives its users a free space of 15GB for storing files, Gmail, and Google photos. But if you should exhaust your free storage space you can upgrade your storage space. For this, you need to buy the space on Google Drive or you can simply clear up some space for a faster file upload.
Uploading files to Google Drive is easy, quick, and simple. However, Google Drive also has a limit on the size of files that can be uploaded in a day. No matter how spacious your storage space is, every google drive user is allowed to upload a maximum of 750GB worth of data upload per day. Once you have reached your daily upload limit, there is not much you can do again. Furthermore, you can simply pause and continue again the next day.
Uploading your large files on Google Drive is an easy task, I believe anyone can freely do. But if you are still finding it difficult you can simply follow the easy steps using your devices.
