    Gmail Drive is a Shell Namespace Extension that creates a virtual filesystem around your Google Gmail account, allowing you to use Gmail as a storage medium. Gmail creates a virtul drive on your computer that acs like a regular drive - you can drag and drop stuff onto him or out.

    btw,
    this is exprimentl, so don't get any hopes or something. but still, it is working. somehow.

    I guess it might help someone who was really low on space and didn't mind it taking a while to upload.

    I have used it in the past.
    But for me it's not necessary.
