Thanks! I wanted gmail for the online storage, without wasting my own bandwidth. :thumbsup:

Can it be linked externally? Kind of like a file server? Or is it just for personal online storage? Seems like a great idea for backing up data. Might have to try it out when I get home.

What's the file privacy on files uploaded to the server? I heard that GMail was allowed to scan your emails for email spamming research reasons. Are they allowed to do the same to your files for some other lame reason?

It's pretty slick to play with, but you can't store files over 10mb, so it's usefulness is somewhat limited.

it would be the same. all this does is basically email yourself your file as an attachment, sorta. this probably won't last long I wouldn't think. a lot of people may quickly hit their 1GB limit. Then again, since it's still bound to 10MB, it may not matter.

i've stopped using it, as it doesn't support long filenames. wanted to move all my photos onto it, but i ain't going thru 800 photos and renaming them all so they don't have long filenames.
