Gmail Space - backup your personal files online

review by ClifNotes, Jun 2006


As I write this, every free Gmail account comes with 2.73 Gigabytes of storage space for your email. Since I have several Gmail accounts, what in the world do I do with that much space online?


One thing I like to do is backup my critical files online. If my house burns down, a tornado hits, or an earthquake shakes, I'll still be able to access some or most of my files online (if I survive).


Gmail Space allows me to easily use all that free space online. Once installed, I can open my Firefox browser, then drag and drop files into and out of my Gmail space. It's an awesome tool, and I highly recommend it.


If you don't use Firefox browser, you might want to check out a little program called GmailDrive, which creates a virtual hard drive on your PC.




Quote from Mozilla Addons

This extension allows you to use your Gmail Space (almost 3GB) for file storage. It acts as a remote machine. You can transfer files between your hard drive and gmail. This is similar to "Gmail Drive" on windows platform. Your gmail account looks like a FTP host and you can upload and download your files. After you install, you get an option called "GSpace" in your "tools" menu clicking on which opens the window for transfer of files/folders ...
