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  an 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 well.





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.
