Use GMail Filesystem As a Virtual Hard Drive


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Software


Gmail Drive Web Storage GoogleWe all know how great Google GMail is. People have been clamoring for invitations to Google's email service for months, and those that have it flaunt it. Well, since pretty much no one is going to fill up their Google mailboxes with actual email anytime soon, why not use the space for something more useful? GMail Drive is just the thing, as it turns the filesystem used on your GMail account into a virtual hard drive. It will show up as a drive within Windows, and you can drag-and-drop files directly to your Google webspace! The downside? You can not upload files larger than 10 MB, which is the GMail attachment size limit. More info on the product:

GMail Drive is a Shell Namespace Extension that creates a virtual filesystem around your Google GMail account, allowing you to use GMail as a storage medium.

GMail Drive creates a virtual filesystem on top of your Google GMail account and enables you to save and retrieve files stored on your GMail account directly from inside Windows Explorer. GMail Drive literally adds a new drive to your computer under the My Computer folder, where you can create new folders, copy and drag'n'drop files to.
