Google Workspace. "Configuration" section

The Basic and Business Starter editions include 30 GB of Google Drive for each user. A Customer can additionally purchase the GDrive (Google Drive), GVault (Google Vault), and Users Resources.

All other editions have Google Vault and unlimited Google Drive storage for each user. A Customer can additionally purchase only Users (user licenses).

Trial Plans include a limited number of users for free. Purchasing the GVault and GDrive Resources during the trial period is not available. 

During the commercial period of Annual Subscriptions, you can only upgrade Resources. Resource downgrade is only possible with renewing a Subscription (see Google Workspace. Renewing a Subscription).

During the commercial period of Flexible Subscriptions, you can upgrade and downgrade the Subscription Resources. Before downgrading the licenses, go to the Google Admin Console and check the amount of unassigned licenses. You can downgrade the Users Resource only by the amount of unassigned licenses. You can remove the licenses if required (see Assign, remove, and reassign licenses). You can downgrade the Resource in a Change Order or Prolong Order only by the amount of unassigned licenses (see an example below on how to view the amount of licenses).

Activating a stopped Subscription by prolongation with a new amount of Resources is not supported. First, complete a Prolong Order with the current amount of Resources and then, after the Subscription activation, change the amount of Recourses.

To start using the GDrive or GVault Resources, you need to purchase a license and assign it to a selected user in the Google Admin Console (see Assign, remove, and reassign licenses).

To view the quantity of used Resources (used disk space and assigned licenses), go to the Billing page in the Google Admin Console.
