Gmail And Photos Content Deletions Will Start December 1

Google will start deleting inactive personal accounts, including Gmail messages, Google Photos, Calendar appointments, and Docs archives, from December 1. This applies to accounts unused for at least two years. Google issued warnings in July, targeting first those created but never used. Inactive accounts pose a security risk, and the purge aims to safeguard against compromise. Users with regular activity are unlikely to be affected. To protect your content, sign in at least once every 24 months. Google business accounts are not impacted, and recovery options are available for forgotten details.
