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.

    I have to wonder if disabling your GMail account for the sake of 7GB of free storage is worth it? You can buy an 8GB USB thumb drive for less than $15 and *IF* you really need space a 1TB external USB drive can be gotten for $75 (or LESS on sale), that's about 140 times more space than GMail drive, the idea seems good but is it worth it to possibly Lose access to your GMail account, Personally, I think not!

    To be clear, this doesn't make it a bad thing..but it's not Google: From Wikipedia,
    GMail Drive is an experimental package that depends on but is not provided by Google. Changes in Google's Gmail system may render GMail Drive temporarily or permanently inoperable.
    The current GMail Drive does not support accounts that are with Google Apps. The Gmail Program Policies do not explicitly ban GMail Drive, shell namespace extensions, or the use of Gmail storage space for files other than e-mail.[2] Nonetheless, immoderate use of GMail Drive may trigger Google to temporarily suspend a Gmail account.[3]

    It has been around for many years, so relax, and enjoy it.

    If google's being able to block this tool and even block my gmail account it would be a tragedy for me. I had a lot of important emails and contacts in it. Really worried.
