Editors' Review

+

Gspace is a Firefox extension that takes the small pile of gigabytes that the Google folks give you for your Gmail account and turns them into a drive with storage and music-playing capabilities.

Accessible via a toolbar button or from the menu bar, the extension opens a new tab with an FTP-style interface. You can transfer files by highlighting them and hitting the directional arrow. Drag and drop is not available, but the plug-in is still replete with goodies. Uploading a file sends an e-mail with it attached to your Gmail. By creating an appropriate filter and folder, it can be quite easy to keep track of the files you've uploaded. Deleting the file from Gspace deletes the e-mail.

Gspace also allows users to switch between different Gmail accounts, has an Inbox button so you can quickly jump back to the standard Gmail interface, and supports different uses of the virtual drive. These include a Music mode, which can be used with a Flash music player to create a Web-based MP3 player, and a Photo mode, which can be used for displaying photos--although it didn't work for us.

Additional features include help buttons and a status bar that tells you which account you're using and the amount of space used. Gspace also can show you files uploaded with GMail Drive, a similar program, although those files aren't accessible from Gspace. Highly recommended.

 |  Version: Gspace 0.5.92

Pros

Very easy to use for uploading/downloading/updating files; useful for saving backup copies.

Cons

Won't let you update files on computer from storage; should allow copying in both directions without changing filenames.

"A very good free tool for online file storage."

December 02, 2007  |  By NOELVH

 |  Version: Gspace 0.5.92

Pros

I like that I can up load files to my Gmail account for easy access from any computer. The FireFox addon gives you two way to use it. 1) from the tool bar it open to a full page FTP like client. 2) from the bottom status bar in a simpler interface. With a simple Gmail filter you can have the files labeled and archived for you. From me this in the only file storage I need. To use this with out you own computer simply install FireFox portable to a pen drive and you can run your FireFox from any windows based pc with Gspace. This addon is update on a regular basis to meet the changes made by Googole.

Cons

It did not work for one week when Google moved to it's new Gmail 2 platform.

It is easy to install & use, bu it puts every single file, photo or whatever, on an individual e-mail which means you have to open a different e-mail to view each item.
