Free application allows Google Apps users to manage and clear storage space in Gmail

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 6, 2013 — / — Backupify, the leading provider of cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery solutions for Software as a Service (SaaS) applications, today launched FreeSpace, a free Gmail storage management tool that actively monitors and manages the storage space available in Google Apps Gmail accounts.

FreeSpace addresses the challenge users face today when reaching maximum storage capacity on their Gmail accounts after years of sending and receiving large files as attachments. Google Apps Gmail accounts are limited to 25 gigabytes of storage, which includes data stored in email messages and attachments. When a Gmail account reaches its storage quota, users are no longer able to send or receive emails from that account until data is deleted. Reaching this quota results in lost productivity and arbitrary destruction of potentially important company data.

FreeSpace was designed to take the pain out of managing attachments by keeping the Gmail account slim. The solution identifies large attachments that users can download or delete, ensuring they never run out of space in their Gmail accounts.

“As a backup provider for Google Apps we have seen first-hand the incredible data accumulation within our customers’ domains,” said Rob May , CEO of Backupify. “We built FreeSpace to ease the burden of managing these growing accounts while still being able to preserve the valuable company data that they contain.”

FreeSpace offers the following benefits for both Google Apps users and administrators:

  • For Google Apps administrators, FreeSpace provides complete visibility of their users’ Gmail usage, and enables admin control by  making it easy to alert users to take action when they run low on storage space;
  • For Google Apps Gmail users, FreeSpace saves time by identifying large attachments so that the users can choose what to delete or securely offload; and
  • FreeSpace leaves conversations intact no matter whether you delete, download or ignore the attachment.

Google Apps users interested in trying FreeSpace can visit to sign up for free.
