I posted an article a while back about the GMail Drive shell extension for Windows that allows users to use their Google GMail account as an “online” disc drive.

Since then I have had a few search engine hits for “GMail Drive” 10MB. I can only assume that they are searching for a reason as to why they can only store files of up to 10Mb given that they have 2+Gb of storage capacity on GMail.

This is quite simply because GMail has a self-impossed limit of 10Mb per email, therefore, because the GMail Drive extension stores the files on GMail as emails it can on store files of up to 10Mb. For more information on this you should check out Google maximum attachment size FAQ.
