What do you do when you run out of Google One storage? I didn't want to upgrade my plan, so I went for lifetime cloud storage with pCloud.
I’ve been a Google One subscriber for a while now, opting for the 100GB plan after Google stopped unlimited high-quality backups in Photos. But between my personal usage, photos/videos from review units, and family members on my plan, I realized that 100GB wouldn’t be enough.
Upgrading to 200GB or more seemed like the obvious next step. But I’ve opted against an upgrade in favor of a different cloud backup and storage solution altogether. Here’s why I chose pCloud lifetime storage and how it’s worked for me.
I eventually made the decision to buy a 500GB lifetime cloud storage account via pCloud. This came in at a “special price” of $199, although I’m not sure whether the company ever charges the $570 full price. Part of what convinced me was that pCloud is Swiss-based and has been around since 2014, with the latter boding well for its longevity.
