Why won’t my Gmail let me attach files?

In order to view and attach files from your mobile device, Gmail requires storage rights. Step 1: Go to Settings > Apps > Gmail > Permissions > Storage and click on it to confirm the permissions. Please make sure that it is set to Allow so that Gmail may access and attach files from your phone.

Why is my email not allowing me to attach files?

The most typical cause for an attachment not being sent is that it is too large. These restrictions are imposed by whoever manages your email account, whether it’s through your ISP or through an internet service like Yahoo or GMail. You should check with your email service provider to find out how many attachments are allowed in each email.

Why can’t I upload a file to Google Drive?

It is possible that you will need to restart the upload, and the best way to do so is to restart the Google Drive application. On an Android device, navigate to “Settings -> Applications & notifications -> See all apps” to accomplish this. Locate Drive in the list and press “Force Stop” before attempting to upload again.
