Unlimited Drive Storage

 ·  ☕ 3 min read  ·  😎 victor

Store files in Google Docs without counting against your quota.

Features

  • Upload files to Google Drive without using storage space
  • Download any stored files to your computer

Logic

  • Google Docs take up 0 bytes of quota in your Google Drive
  • Split up binary files into Google Docs, with base64 encoded text
  • Size of the encoded file is always larger than the original. Base64 encodes binary data to a ratio of about 4:3.
  • A single google doc can store about a million characters. This is around 710KB of base64 encoded data.
  • Some experiments with multi-threading the uploads, but there was no significant performance increase.

Setup & Authentication

  1. Clone the Repository and setup the requirements pip3 install -r requirements.txt
  2. Head to Google’s API page and enable the Drive API
  3. Download the configuration file as ‘client_secret.json’ to the UDS directory
  4. Run python3 uds.py or ./uds.py for initial set up
