Use Gmail as an online storage place

Google is one of the major site that is prefered the most due to due to its security,
interface , contacts recovery and
much more. Gmail a email provider, run by Google provides about 7 GB of space online for storing our data secure and safe. But it is time consuming, as we have to login to our account and navigate to our stored place. What about having the gmail storage directly in our explorer. Here I have some great little
utilities that you can try to use
your Gmail account space as your
external hard drive.
Download and install the software and enjoy your gmail storage.

1. Gmail Drive
GMail Drive is a Shell Namespace
Extension that creates a virtual
filesystem around your Google
Mail 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.

2. GSpace
GSpace is a firefox extension
that turns your 3GB of your Gmail
account into free online storage.
With Gspace you can manage
unlimited Gmail accounts to store
all type of files within its simple,
user friendly interface. You can
also listen your favourite stored
music directly from your Gspace,
view your collections of pictures
and manage your Gdrive files as

3. GmailFS
GmailFS or Gmail File System is a
virtual file system developed by
Richard Jones which allows users
to mount and use their Gmail
email account’s storage as a local
disk drive. GmailFS is written for
Linux, but Windows and Mac OS X
ports do exist. Using GmailFS will
provide the user with roughly
three gigabytes of online
storage. The speed of this
filesystem is limited by the speed
of the user’s Internet connection,
and the upload/download speed
of the Gmail server. Files can be
any size, and are stored as
(segmented) attachments.
