G Suite Transition – Sharing files with Gmail and Google Drive

Ever run into that pesky 20MB limit when sending an email with a large attachment in GroupWise? You can now attach files in Gmail with less restriction than GroupWise.

Google has a better solution to make sure your attachment reaches your recipient. Gmail has a 25MB attachment size. 5MB may not sound like much of a difference, but it is equivalent to 5,242,800 characters!

But wait, there’s more – you can share files over 25MB by utilizing Google Drive.

With Google Drive, there is NO LIMIT to what file size you can share with others.

While using Google Drive, please remember:

  • Do not include PII (Personally Identifiable Information, e.g. Student ID Numbers), credit card / financial data, etc.
  • Unless necessary, do not share Drive documents outside of the GRCC domain
