Run the Gmail file system via gDisk
Authored by: mclbruce on Jan 26, '07 09:38:12AM
I ran across gDisk quite a while ago. I don't see it mentioned anywhere on the MacOSXHints site.

It gives you access to storage space on your Gmail account as a disk mounted on your desktop. No MacFUSE needed, it's just a small (2.6MB) application.

I don't know how well it works. I don't use it regularly.

Run the Gmail file system via gDisk

Some of us use gmailfs on other platforms and gDisk is incompatible with gmailfs - so the short of it is gDisk cannot access previously made gmailfs "partitions" (for lack of a better term).
So while this is fine for someone trying it out for the first time, it would be rather useless to someone who already has setup gmailfs and shares.
