How to Get 100GB of Free Google Drive Space on a Chromebook

  • MORE

Most Chromebooks come with 100GB of free space on Google Drive, but you don't just get it for logging in to your new Chromebook with your Google account. You have to take a few steps to redeem the storage. If you use Google Drive a lot (and you will, given the limited amounts of internal storage on Chromebooks), you will want to take advantage of this offer.

Here is how to get your 100GB of free Google Drive space on a Chromebook.

1. Open Chrome from the desktop.

5. You will be greeted with a "Victory!" screen if you qualify. Click "Start using Google Drive" to be taken to your account. It may take a few minutes for the 100GB to be applied to your account.

    I have a quick guestion:

    Are you able to redeem this free storage space once per google account or once per device. I'm looking to buy a chromebook but i'm unsure that if I buy a refurbished one, will I miss out on this?
