Google storage limits and how to solve

Combined Shape

This dedicated article provides more info on storage limits and how you can clean them.

When using the Gsuite Directory, you have the following limits to store contacts:

  • Maximum number of external contacts (= without a G suite domain): 50.000
  • Total storage space: 20 MB
  • Maximum size per contact: 2 KB

However, usually your contacts only take very little storage. It's shared across multiple Google entities. If you have a limited amount of contacts, the root cause of your storage problem is most likely located somewhere else.
