Terrabyte Limit Attributed To Gmail Bug

A “bug” in Google’s test e-mail system, Gmail, temporarily gave some users one terabyte of free storage, 1000 times the one gigabyte the Web search company is currently offering to lure people awayfrom rivals Yahoo Inc. and Microsoft Corp.

A Google spokesman said the storage increase was the result of a “bug” and that the company was working to fix the glitch. He did not give additional details, but said Gmail, which is available through a limited test, currently offers one gigabyte of storage.

One terabyte is roughly the equivalent of 16 days of continuously running DVD movies.
