I had been using gDisk in its early days. I worked wonderfully.

However, there was a period when it could not log in to Gmail. I waited for a long period before I tried to use is again.

Over a period of several months and till today, it is not working. I failed to login.

I give 2 stars rating:
- for being this application easy to use;
- a good idea to make good use of Gmail;
- for making it a freeware.

Looses 3 stars to:
- not working for a long period (at least in my case)

Log into your Gmail account. Anything you uploaded with gDisk is in the Drafts folder. Each file is a message with the file attached. The messages have a label of the same name as the folder in which the attached file appeared in gDisk.

Well, that's the end of that!
Since my review a year ago the software did improve a little. However due to changes made by Google (I believe) it can no longer do it's job.

When opening the app it constantly asks if you wish default labels added to your disk...(even if you already have them). Click "Yes" and it crashes. Click "No" and the dialog box stays there permanently... meaning you have to force quit.

That was on Tiger. I've upgraded to 10.5 and it's just the same on Leopard. Shame really, this app had so much potential and promise - just read the posts - but is now just a dead Dodo.
Perhaps someone will reanimate it or create a new GUI that actually works this time.

What to do in the meantime......?

Well, OmniDrive has a Mac client that works and gives you a 1GB account free. Also I've moved over to JungleDisk - not free but very cheap. Both apps show the disk in your finder so it's pretty convenient.

Yes, it looks like Google must have changed the authentication scheme, because it's impossible to log in any more. Too bad. I see the source code is available on the site, but I (probably like the developer) don't have time to study the google API at this point.

I have exactly same problems as described in previous posters. I have being using gDisk since October last year and now suddenly it doesn't work any more, having same troubles as described elsewhere.
It is not a serious application, Nice idea but no support, no help, no evolution since one year. Don't trust it.
