If you’re like me, you probably use your GMail account as a convenient storage space for large files in addition to use as a normal email account. Why bother to burn a CD-R when you have an entire gig of storage on Google’s speedy servers? Slashdot reports on a new free program called GMail Drive that makes transfering files easier than ever. It literally adds a new drive to your My Computer file and allows you to copy files to and from it; the tranfers take place via emails sent through your account (you can set up a filter to keep these from cluttering your inbox).
I haven’t tried this out yet, but I will soon. I have two GMail invitations available for any readers who are still in need.
