“Gmail Space”: Using the Gigabytes of your GMail account as backup drive – With a Firefox Extension

Using the Gmail Space Extension for Firefox you can copy files from your hard disk into your gmail account with a click of the mouse – e.g. for backup purposes or to transfer files between PCs.

Files are stored in your gmail account as normal emails with file attachments, so you can retrieve the files using Gmail’s web interface, even without having installed the plugin!

Currently each GMail account has some 2.7 GB of filespace (and this value is growing), not bad for an online-backup medium!
