Use G Mail as a Hard Drive

GMail Drive is a Shell Namespace Extension that creates a virtual drive in the Windows Explorer, allowing you to use your Google Gmail account as a storage medium.

It allows you to do basic file manipulation, such as copy and delete, on files inside the GMail folder. Because it is a Shell Extension, the interface you work in is Windows Explorer itself.

GMail files are physically stored as e-mails on your Google Gmail account. The files are stored in mail attachments, and the filename and file information (such as filesize) is stored in the message subject line.

GMail Drive has already been installed on your computer. All you need to do now, is to browse to the GMail Drive entry under your My Computer folder in the Windows Explorer. (right click on My Computer and click on explore)

After you finished installing this, sign in with your username and password. If you wish to get a gmail account, then go to and log in with ur gmail id!

This becomes like an external drive just drag and drop in the files u like in the GMail Drive..

Now the amazing thing is that when u drag the any files in the GMail Drive it will show in your email from your e-mail. So it save lot of time to as it is simple drag and drop...

Every Gmail account has a 2GB storage limit. If you have 1 gmail account you can make 50 more. Just do the math, 2x50 = 100GB of storage space.

Now you dont need a new hard drive
