Windows 7: GMail Drive - Use 8GB as Local Storage

07 Nov 2010   #30

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 OEM --> RTM clean install

Sweet, I used to use this on my old x86 XP rig.... Good to see it made it over to x64.

@Maranello - it saves your files as attachments in the draft folder of you email, so the max file size is what Gmail says you can attach - I think it's 25Mb.

Windows 7 ultimate

I have a query that if we are going to change our laptop/desktop which contain our Gmail Drive, how to transfer it to our new systems? or does it mean that our data will remain online no matter where we map our Gmail Drive?

exactly, the data remains online and can also be accessed trough your gmail web page
i recommend creating a separate folder for all the Gmail Drive files
