  • they should have used one of those plans themselves yesterday.
    maybe then there wouldn't have been an outage
    :)

  • PER MONTH?

    Hell no.

  • +3 votes

    I find them rather expensive, to be polite.

  • At those prices just buy your own drives lol

    • Some probably need the data in the cloud and don't want to tunnel into their own network.

    • I am actually doing just this!

      When the news broke out about Google Photos I added storage to my Synology NAS and will run Synology Photos and it will stay connected 24/7 giving me the same functionality as Google Photos without the monthly fee. I was happy paying $2.50/month but now I'll cancel that too. I have about 5TB in Google Photos I now need to figure out how to download :)

      • 5TB!?!? Are you a photographer? There is no way you're a regular phone photo snapper haha

        • Regular phone snapper!
          Plenty of video on there too, no 4K though, all 1080P (free unlimited).

          90% of it is of my daughter growing up :)

          • @Click_It: How are you planning to have it auto sync from your phone to your server?

            • @kulprit: I assume there is a way to do that, it's a pretty developed app from what I hear. Even if I have to manually do it weekly or monthly it'll be worth it to escape Google's grip. Bravo to Google for suckering us all in with free cloud storage all these years, well played!

              • @Click_It: Wouldn't it be cheaper to just pay for the 2tb in both effort, backup and cost of the appliance.
                IIRC, anything that's up there at the moment won't get counted towards quota, but anything added from now on will.

              • @Click_It: You might want to consider some of the other, less well advertised alternatives, such as Degoo and pCloud.
                Both have been around for years, and offer lifetime accounts.
                The only downside is that you may have to exercise some discipline in what you upload, as you'll breach Degoos 15TB limit the way you're going !

          • @Click_It: That's crazy. Must be a lot of content over many years.

            • @nurries: Her most embarrassing moments for her 16th, 18th and 21st are already covered :)

              Yes, so much content. Priceless memories.

              Priceless maybe, but I'm not prepared to pay Google their new fees. The irony.

      • https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout
        you can download your photos here.

        • I tried that once before and it only found 269GB out of my 5TB…

          • @Click_It: Wow that's strange…
            Might want to contact Google to work it out?
            Or try Rclone?

            • @Leedian: Yeah it's got me beat. I just tried it again in 50GB files in case that would help but it's still less than 10% of what I have on Photos. I don't mind paying for a solution, I just want my content downloaded. Stupid me for trusting Google in the first place, in the early days I manually backed up everything first and then I got lazy…

              I'll check out Rclone too.

              EDIT: I may have found a solution! Search Photos by year, I've just done 2020 and selecting less than 500 photos at a time until I have the entire calendar year, save that to an album "2020" and then download that entire album with thousands of photos/videos in it. Rinse and repeat. Apparently this downloads in a much tidier fashion than Google Takeout too, reddit is full of complaints about the messy result of using Takeout (I never completed a download to have my own experience). This new idea seems to be working a treat!

              Side note, I'm sure back in the day Photos would let you easily select EVERYTHING and just download, I'm sure I did that once or twice when I used to maintain 2 copies of everything. Anyway… This seems to work. Hopefully it helps someone else too.

      • @Click_It how much did your nas setup cost you in total? i'm trying to work out what i need to do.

        • Sure, are you sitting down? :)
          Synology DS1621+ was $1,450
          6 * WD 12TB Elements (average $287 ea) —> $1,724
          Grand total —> $3,174

          The caveat is, by no means do you need to spend that much. I specially paid a premium getting the DS1621+ because I wanted the AMD Ryzen CPU it has, because I have 10 yr plan for this NAS. I could have continued using the old NAS I already had for free but it was 7 years old and I didn't want to deal with issues a few years into a new cycle.

          You may not need 6 bays, 4 could be enough. Also weight up less bays with larger drives too. When on sale the 18TB version is under $29/TB which isn't far off the $23/TB of the 12TB on sale. An OzBargain fave is the DS921+ for under $1000.

          The other reason I was happy to pay a premium was because I was able to sell my old Synology NAS's (they really hold their value!) which paid for the NAS and part of the cost of the drives, so the whole thing really only cost me around $1500 with all 6 drives and I won't have to spend another cent for at least 5 years.

          Alternatively, you can avoid Synology altogether and look at cheaper solutions / or build your own. But I've been extremely happy with Synology, they cost more but you get quality and a huge ecosystem.

          But if one were to get this 10TB plan from Google One, that's $750/yr every year. And I wouldn't be surprised if the prices jack up after Google knows they have everyone where they want them. This has been a wake-up call me for and I'm not considering reducing my dependence on the google ecosystem, not just Photos. It's pretty scary how integrated most of us now are.

  • Better off going to Backblaze B2 storage at that price. Google products integration is a big selling point but I personally prefer storing most of my data on B2 with just the necessities for integration with Google services on my entry level Google One plan.

    • Never know if this service. Will look up to see if it meets my needs.

    • Currently have about 80TB backed up with BB, has been very good. First backup took about a month my 200/200 connection backing up around 40TB.

      I just plug all the drives in once every three weeks with a couple of new files on them to keep them “current” and from being removed from the backup.

      • Yeah I have been with them 8 years, great service.

      • Wow that's a ton of data man! I use Duplicacy from my Unraid server to sync everything automatically except my home media as the cost of all that storage can add up very quickly. B2 is still the cheapest data storage though.

  • Op - Check the prices.
    I am getting below and felt reasonably good considering what you are getting.

    100 GB - per month $2.49 - Per year $24.99
    200 GB - per month $4.39 - Per year $43.99
    2TB - per month $12.49 - Per year $124.99

  • So I currently have GSuite business with unlimited storage for $14.71 per month. Will this Google One service replace the GSuite Business setup in July 2021?

    • and why is it called 'Google Workspaces (formally GSuite)' in some regions and still 'GSuite' in others? Is this a slow rollout?

    • No - GSuite is their "business" offering, and it's now called Workspaces. Google One is their home-user Google Drive service.

      But I agree with you. If you're grandfathered on the old GSuite Business plan for $15/m for unlimited storage, that's the best you can get. Just upload/download using Rclone and you're perfect.

      If you're new to this, get Workspaces Enterprise (single user, $28/m) also with unlimited storage. Much better value for money than these plans if you're planning to back up many TB.

      • this is excellent information, thank you vicerum.

      • i dont suppose there is a way to get that sweet $14 pricing is there

        if u have 2 users, can you each isolate your data so your photos etc dont get mixed up but still have unlimited storage?

  • One Drive 6TB (1TB per user) on family plan is currently $65 per year. Google can't compete at this rate…

    • Microsoft prices definitely better! People in Google eco system are better off on Google One though.

      • Yep the Google sales team worked really well on this, get everyone using the software on the Pixels, then charge for it. Ouch

    • How are you seeing it for this price? It shows as $129/yr for my account.

      • There's a deal running at the moment:
        https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/586683

        You get the notification when you upgrade to the latest version of windows 10. It's included as part of the standard guff the give you after it says "We are just getting things ready". I didn't read it and skipped past it but later went back to Settings -> Account and still had the option to purchase for 50% of.

  • I'll repost this here for extra visibility:

    If you're grandfathered on the old GSuite Business plan for $15/m for unlimited storage, that's the best you can get. Just upload/download using Rclone and you're perfect.

    If you're new to all this, get Workspaces Enterprise (single user, $28/m) also with unlimited storage. Much better value for money than these plans if you're planning to back up many TB.

  • They kicked their customers out from google photos, starting to shutdown and close inactive accounts, now have plenty of free space to sell

    • when are they deleting old accounts?

      • From 1st June 2021 any accounts that havent been touched for more than 2 years will have content from that service deleted gradually (ie. if you havent checked your Gmail inbox for 2 years, you'll start losing emails)

        So the earliest anyone will have a service affected by this is 1st June 2023. They'll also be sending out regular reminders for this prior.

        And nobody is getting kicked out of Google Photos, not sure what that guy's on about.

  • I get google play credit form the Google surveys app, so I dont really pay for the 209g planning on but I sure as hell am not paying that much for 2TB, so I'm close to abandoning GOne for most of my data storage (130gb is photos alone, and I'm now 98% full).

  • Serious question, has anyone figured out an easy way to download everything from Google Photos? It used to be easy but ever tried it recently? I haven't been able to figure out how to get my 5TB off of it yet. I'm switching to my NAS Cloud instead. By killing Google Photos vs paying for the 10TB plan I'd need, I'm in front after 24 months.

    • Are you using Google Takeout?

    • Google Takeout is the only 'official' method.

      You could also use Rclone to do this, but keep in mind downloaded images are not in their original resolution, and also have their EXIF data stripped, so this would be a "last resort" kind of method - https://rclone.org/googlephotos/

      • See my post above, but I've now started sorting Photos by year moving less than 500 files at a time and then downloading the entire year natively from their page. I would assume everything will download in original form doing it this way buy I'll report back if that's wrong.

        Google Takeout was a bust, it was gathering less than 10% of what I have on Photos for some reason.
