    That was my thought at reading this, but for those who with this account it is good for them to know. Personally however, I shall be sticking with the First Class service of SKYDRIVE

    Gmail drive was very populer during the time frame when we first got the gmail service with HUGE 1 GB of storage compare to Yahoo / Hotmail with just 5 / 2 MB of it..

    Back then it used to be a really hand feature, but now days with service like skydrive and google pages, I dont feel this is attractive enough..

    But then again, thanks for posting may be some user would find it useful

    AFAIK, this is hack of the GMail service and is questionable at best. Note that this software IS NOT SUPPORTED by Google. The hack's author has this note on his site:
    Please note that GMail Drive is still an experimental tool. There's still a number of limitations of the file-system (such as total filename size must be less than 65 characters). Since the tool hooks up with the free Gmail Service provided by Google, changes in the Gmail system may break the tool's ability to function. I cannot guarantee that files stored in this manner will be accessible in the future.
    In short, if you value your files, go with SkyDrive or another legal online backup service.

    I completely agree with you here James. Stick with legal trusted things all the time not other things.
