I'm out of space on Google Drive

If you run out of storage space on Google Drive and can no longer save your Screencastify recordings to your Drive, you have three options:

Free up space on your Drive

To free up space on your Drive, move any files you no longer need (especially video files or other large files) to your trash. Important: Don't forget to empty the trash when you're finished, or else no space will be freed up.

Buy more space

You can purchase more Drive storage space  here.

Save your Screencastify recordings locally on your device

WARNING

Saving your Screencastify recordings locally isn't as safe as saving them on your Drive. If you uninstall Screencastify or remove your Chrome user account, your recordings will be permanently deleted.

To save your recordings locally:

  1. Open up the extension's Main Menu
  2. Click "Options"
  3. Under "Where to store your recordings", click "Locally on this Device"
