Year ago or so, I bought a paid Google Storage quota. Google -- of course without asking me, if I'm willing to do so -- set automatic renewal of my Google storage quota. Because I think what I think about automatic credit card operations, first thing I did after was to disable this (cancel renewal). To my extreme surprise this blocked me from manually renewing my subscription next year.
About a year later, I wanted to renew my current disk quota manually. I was a bit surprised that I actually can't do this, if I have automatic renewal disabled. I can either:
- enable automatic renewal again or
- buy lower or higher disk quota.
But there is no way to continue with current quota and manual, one-time payment, without changing size or re-enabling automatic renewal.
