SAN FRANCISCO: 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, beginning October 13.

Currently, Google Drive keeps all files, including the trashed ones, indefinitely, IANS reported.

“Starting October 13, 2020, we’re changing the retention policies for items in the Trash in Google Drive. With this new policy, any file 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 user emptied the trash.

“Any files already in a user’s trash on October 13, 2020, will remain there for 30 days. After the 30 days, 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 products and services, such as Gmail.
