New Delhi: Just like Gmail, Google will now keep your trashed files in its Drive platform for only 30 days and start deleting those once the deadline is crossed, starting October 13.
Currently, Google Drive keeps all files, including the trashed ones, indefinitely.
“Starting October 13, 2020, we’re changing the retention policies for items in the Trash in Google Drive. With this new policy, any file that is put into a Google Drive trash will be automatically deleted after 30 days,” Google said in a statement.
Previously, trashed items would be retained indefinitely until the trash was emptied by the user.
“Any files already in a user’s trash on October 13, 2020 will remain there for 30 days. After the 30-day period, files that have been in the trash for longer than 30 days will begin to be automatically deleted,” Google added.
This change matches the policies of other G Suite…
