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.
thanks the instructable! I've been needing some extra space for a while!

Anyway to use this on a mac?
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.

Interesting, I set one up for myself. Thanks for the tip.
i have done this before and when they do upgrades it sometimes does`nt let you log in i use it for junk lol or not so important files.
