Free Gmail /Hard drive! Save your data, don't worry about computer crashes :)

I still get quite a few requests for Gmail !

I have been using gmail as a harddrive for the past few days and have downloaded most of my photos, personal files into my gmail drive as a backup.

I downloaded the small program from the link below and executed it.(134 kb)

Download GMail Drive Shell Extension from here

That opened up a Gmail Drive which showed along with my other drives on "My Computer"

When I double click it, it asks for my login name and password. Use your Gmail login and password. If you don't have one send an email to : asmileforfree@gmail.com and I'll send an invite immediately.

As soon as you login it opens up like a folder where you can drag/drop or copy/paste your files folders... on your Gmail Drive

I lost quite a few photos when my computer crashed a few times, but now I have started backing my photos and oher electronic data on my Gmail drive

It makes life easier as you can access your data from any computer(even through your gmail email). More info on : http://viksoe.dk/gmail/

Got this from a friend (software wizard) and am sharing it for people who are not aware of the same.

Have fun :)

it was working for me for a while, after which the tool wouldn't log in :(, so do be a lil careful until it is endorsed by gmail themselves ... I remember (http://www.filelodge.com) and other services that give upto 500MB free hosting ... try using them

such tools can be blocked by gmail anyday ... coz they use gmail api ;)
