FREE 3gb HDD

post #1 of 19

ORIGINAL POST: http://www.h2xmods.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=144

So If you are someone like me and you download a lot of movies and random stuff like that but you have a small hard drive and you cant get every thing to fit, and you keep on having to delete old stuff that you do not want to.this is going to be really helpful

so what to do...
to do this you are going to start off by making a Gmail account. Gmail is a very good because it provides you with 3 gig’s of memory. (this is what you are going to be using to make into your new expanded hard drive.

Here is a link to Gmail directly. Just set up an account it is very simple and quick.
https://www.google.com/accounts/Serv...p;ltmplcache=2



ok after you have created an account with Gmail you are going to need to do the following.

-go to this link http://viksoe.dk/code/gmail.htm
scroll down to the very bottom and click on download site #1

install the kernel, go to "My Computer" AFTER REBOOT

there should be a Gmail drive in there...double click it, type in your gmail account and password and you now have a web based 3gb HDD especially usefull for backing up important files.

We know what's a HDD, I bet 99.99% people on the forum knows. Also, a HDD is not a memory card, it's a hunk of heavy metal for storage...


I thought it was 4GB for gmail

the new Yahoo! update disabled the Y! drive, apparently Yahoo! didn't like the whols idea of their database being used as a unlimited hard drive, so for now Gmail drive is the way to go

I only use this for important files, like irreplaceable ones, if my HDD were to fail one day
