Anyone using unlimited google drive bought from ebay?

sanvitsanvit Member

Some were selling those accounts for $5 each, and it just seemed so good to be true... Anyone using those? How are they? Are speeds same as original google accounts? Has anyone gotten those accounts suspended due to violation of ToS?

    Same speeds, etc as any other account. I've heard suspension nightmares though so I'm just using it as secondary storage.

    I ended up buying a G Suite Business ($10/mo) plan and even though the site says minimum 5 accounts required for unlimited storage (otherwise 1TB each) they don't seem to enforce that. The domain shows unlimited storage even with 1 user.

    Thanks! The G Suite Business is total $15 ($5for buisness account + $10 for storage), right?

    Nope, just $10 per account. The normal licenses are $5/mo ea - if you switch it just changes to $10/mo ea.

    You get the 2 week trial for a new domain and then it'll start on the $10 plan if you switch your licensing.

    As i know you also get Unlimited Storage if you purchase Google Pixel Smartphone, is that right? I thought multiple times about getting one.

    No worries. Definitely recommend the paid plans, even with 1 user you're technically a Google business/enterprise customer - less chance of being dicked around like the folks who use Amazon Cloud Drive (consumer product) are when they try to pull down a couple terabytes of files.

    I thought you only get unlimited Google Photo. A good choice if your looking for a phone, but bad choice if your looking for storage....

    Edu unlimited?

    Don't use for onlyonestorage. Google or the edu administrator can suspend anytime your account. Then your data is lost. Do you want this?

    Buy the Gsuite for 8 euro per month. Already unlimited and safe!

    search it on ebay. You can find some around $5

    Got two of em and RAID1ed it :) Gsuite $10 seems to be a bit expensive when your mainly going to use it for plex cloud :)

    I did the same exact thing. Better safe than sorry. Snagged one off of ebay and one from @al3xt a couple months ago. So far so good, up to ~8.5TB on each right now.

    BTW @sanvit, make sure the two you got are on different domains in case one of the domains gets revoked by Google.

  • Dormeo said: buy google business for yourself and nobody will see your files and it will be safe, for 8 euro per month is not a big money...

    Why do this though? Assuming noone really wants unlimited, one could just get one of those Kimsufis-2TB for around $7 a month. Install seafile/owncloud on it, and get enough storage.

    Well, some are storing tens of terabytes of files. Plus, if you upload videos/etc. Google will encode it for you. And mostly, the speed. I get around 5MB/s using Google Drive while getting 400KB/s on my €10 oneprovider dedi. :(

    I did as well and I am thinking this is against Google's TOS. I would not touch one of these with @WSS 's pole. This can only be a recipe for disaster when you think about it for longer then two seconds to click buy now.

    Plus the 1TB to download whatever it was to the server. So, 1TB becomes 3TB. I have a 30TB b/w allowance per month so I'm fine with all the traffic.

  • How're you guys mounting google drive on Linux? Special options? What performance do you see?

    @chauffer said: How're you guys mounting google drive on Linux? Special options? What performance do you see?

    Using this gdrive CLI tool for uploads, averaging ~20-30 MB/s (I'm on a 1Gbps shared port, so ymmv). And using rclone mount for mounting the drive with the options below.

    rclone mount --allow-non-empty --allow-other --max-read-ahead 200M drive-name-here:/ /mnt/path &

    Able to stream the files very quickly using the rclone mount. Never had any latency (pause for buffering, etc.).

    I used that for 4 months. But last month ago, it was suspended by google bacause of Tos. My datas were gone. Still, the seller is selling on ebay. I don't recommend it. ps. If you're in Korea. You will get informations at naver cafes about google business cloud.

    I sell Unlimited Google Accounts but the price is one time $15 for LET (I sell for $20)

    My partner is the main admin of the service, so your data is safe from us, just dont need to be removed directly from Google by ToS. Anyways we can recover an account removed by google so you can move your files away if violate ToS and they catch you.

    Forgot to mention: We also include 1Tb Storage in OneDrive Business/Education (Microsoft Cloud) and Office 365 Web version in the deal.

  • DormeoDormeo Member
    1. EDU-style unlimited account?
    2. how can you recover, if google suspend the account? ^^

    You guys really believe in free for life edu account selling for $5, $10, $15 or $20? free for life? one-time fee? And if you ever caught storing files against google ToS, it's not a suspension, mind you. It's a deletion right away.

    For your information, edu accounts comes with a quota! 10,000 users? So yes, if someone sells you $5 or even $1 free for life, he did make $10,000 each users, and then? who is your neighbour? porno freak storing all his porn collection? someone mentioned hentai.. ah hah! So when there is 1 bad apple.. the whole basket of apple (good one i assumed, 9999 out of 10,000) will all be deleted.

    So, you might as well pay for google business $10/month if you can afford, you are your own administrator, and the responsibility is on you yourself too. Or you can find someone that sells yearly edu account (well, only serious buyer that needs storage will go for this option anyway), so you filtered some bad apple & neighbour this way. ahh, thats my 2 cents.

    No, I know that it will not last forever.

    I can afford it, but I also I do not trust it will be forever, even paying monthly or yearly. I am a current happy user of ACD and it will not be unlimited forever. Maybe when customers go to google drive the accounts with less than 5 users will have limit enforced, even with more than 5 accounts google can establish a limit.

    So I will not trust anyone. I plan to have at least two copies of my files (encrypted) in different cloud providers. One candidate is hubic, but it is so slow. Maybe I can hold another copy in google drive which is faster.
