Use your GMail as your Online Storage

There are several ways that you can use your GMail account as your Online Storage. Gmail Drive is one of the third party software to make your Gmail as storage.

GMail Drive is not supported by Google. It allows a user to access a virtual drive stored in a Gmail e-mail account by causing the contents of the Gmail account to appear as a new network share on the user's workstation.


After you installed the GMail Drive, you will find a GMail Drive in your windows explorer. Right click on this new drive and choose Login As. Enter your Gmail username and password when prompted. It is recommended that you create a new Gmail account for this purpose so that you can keep your existing Gmail account safe. After logging in, you can now copy, paste and create folders in this new Gmail Drive just like any regular Windows folder.


Besides using GMail Drive, you may also use GSpace Firefox extension to access and utilize the GMail account as online storage.


**Try at you own risk ** These applications are yet to "certified" and still under testing.
