GMail Drive for Windows

This one is HOT and was previously only available on *nix-based systems!!

GMail Drive is a free Shell Namespace Extension that creates a virtual filesystem around your Google GMail account, allowing you to use GMail as a storage medium with MS Windows.

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 40 characters), and it doesn't make full use of the secure internet protocols available.

Did I already mention that Alex still has some free Gmail invites left?

I've still got 6 invites too (they keep topping them up, and I keep giving them away )

It works as advertised. Installed it, and file transfer appears faster than when I email the same sized attachment, which is pretty nice.

Yet, I don't believe this lasts long. Imagine if people start sharing terabytes of copyrighted data… Google must pull the trigger then!

Gmail Drive 1.03 is out which should take care of Google's recent changes to their login procedures.

Francesco,
I just downloaded and installed v1.05 and it is working for me. It's not very fast but I was definitely able to copy files to the Gmail drive the program created in My Computer. All I did was right click the drive and put in my login info.

Is it giving you any specific errors?

First a dialog window appears with the name "gmail query" and the message "logging onto gmail", in English, generated by Gmail drive, I assume.
After a while, another window says "loging failed, unable to resolve server name or address" (rough translation), in Spanish, generated by Windows.
I double-checked the password.
I guess I'll have to mail myself the files I'd like to upload, LOL.

Francesco make sure to update to the latest version 1.0.5 of Gmail Drive:
Quote:
14 Jan. update: While Google keeps improving their GMail service, they also tend to break the tool's ability to connect to GMail. Version 1.0.5 was released to overcome the latest changes. Please be aware that support for this tool may suspend at any time if Google decides to block its use.

That's the version I'm using. Anyway, I don't really need it. Also, I don't use the windows explorer, so emailing some files to myself would be less cumbersome.
Thanks!

That's the version I'm using. Thanks, but I just gave up: since I don't use the windows explorer, emailing files to myself is the less cumbersome solution.
Thanks, again.
