How to save files to a free virtual drive

Each of us can apply for a free e-mail such as the Gmail. It provides us with 7000 MB of storage space for our e-mail. With such big capacity, we can make use of it to keep some of our files temporarily while we are formatting our hard disk or if we need disk space to save a big file and one way to do it is to move some of the files else. What better place to do put these files other than a virtual drive.

In this post, I would like to recommend one such drive. It is known as Gmail Drive. You can download it here [] .

After installing this software, you can see it appear as Gmail Drive when you click on My Computer. You can copy a file and paste it in this virtual drive. Of course you will be asked to key in your user name and password for your Gmail account. Do accordingly and your file will be transferred to your Gmail account as one of emails you receive. To get back this file, you can download it from your Gmail account or go to Gmail Drive by clicking on My Computer, then click on Gmail Drive and you will be asked for your user name and password and your saved file will appear. You can then copy, delete, or rename it.

Happy transferring files to your virtual drive now.
