How Create Virtual Online Drive For Free With The Help Of Gmail



You all may know well about virtual drives. But what about creating an online virtual drive in your own computer and make it available to you anytime anywhere. Surprised ah ? Yes its true, about creating virtual disk. Gmail is providing about 7650MB to 10240MB for each account, That means you can create a virtual online disk of about 7.5 GB to 10 GB in your own computer.All this is possible with the help of a tool called Gmail Drive.GMail Drive creates a virtual filesystem around your Google Mail account, allowing you to use Gmail as a storage medium.

GMail Drive creates a virtual filesystem on top of your Google Gmail account and enables you to save and retrieve files stored on your Gmail account directly from inside Windows Explorer. GMail Drive literally adds a new drive to your computer under the My Computer folder, where you can create new folders, copy and drag'n'drop files to it.Ever since Google started to offer users a Gmail e-mail account, which includes storage space of 7650megabytes to 10240megabytes , you have had plenty of storage space but not a lot to fill it up with. With GMail Drive you can easily copy files to your Google Mail Account and retrieve them again.

When you create a new file using GMail Drive, it generates an e-mail and posts it to your account. The e-mail appears in your normal Inbox folder, and the file is attached as an e-mail attachment. GMail Drive periodically checks your mail account (using the Gmail search function) to see if new files have arrived and to rebuild the directory structures. But basically GMail Drive acts as any other hard-drive installed on your computer.
