Title: (Solved) Why deleting of gmails does not show decrease in %
Post by: jraju on July 07, 2015, 12:03:11 AM
Hi,
                        I almost had deleted gmail message including enclosures . But whenever , i see the percentage < i usually have 3%) it remains the same. Is this normal? How is this.
                                     Once i tried to store the emails by using google ,,,,,,. But, it also shows me a enclosure in a gmail from google. I deleted that also. But still the percentage remains the same.
                                              Any idea anybody

Because the emails are still in the trash, once the trash is empty you will see the % drop, I think gmail auto removes old trash already.

Not sure without seeing it, but if it is only at 3% used, I wouldnt worry to much about it :-)

Hi, The enclosure to gmails are shown as googles drive storage. So ,i f i delete this would also get deleted. But i will try. I am empyting unwanted gmails with enclosures.
Update:
                    I have solved this problem. when i click my drive in google it shows 3%. I clicked my drive and found there is takeout folder there.I remembered that i deleted the takeout in the mail. But it has been stored as takeout folder in the drive.
                                        That was it. When trying to save the mail contents, as a separate folder along with the mails, google says it could be done by this takeout and i downloaded and saved. But this could not be opened to see what are the mails saved . I also wrote about this in my previous post for suggestion. I could not decipher what are all inside, and how it is stored. Because variety of items included in gmails.
                             Somebody suggested firefox thunderbird to download to my pc as a folder. But i could not further proceed and hence deleted the email containing the takeout. but the contents have been copied to google drive. I deleted and my storage size reduced to 1%. This i have written for users of those who may have an idea of storage problem in gmail.
