Get unlimited Google Drive storage by splitting binary files into base64 ↦
A clever hack that is now being investigated by Google’s internal forums. How it works:
- Google Docs take up 0 bytes of quota in your Google Drive
- Split up binary files into Google Docs, with base64 encoded text
- Encoded file is always larger than the original. Base64 encodes binary data to a ratio of about 4:3.
- A single doc can store ~1 million characters. This is around 710KB of base64 encoded data.
