ok so i did some research and there is only one draw back for this......

you can only save files up to 10mb on it there are other programs and add-ons that can break up larger files so they can fit.
just thought i'd mention that.

I had this set up about a year ago, and I found it useful but impossibly slow, and then it broke and I couldn't delete the files off of my Gmail account. I think it cost me a couple hundred megabytes on my account.
