Backup to Gmail

Recommended Posts

Lifehacker's download of the day: Backup to Email.





Windows only: Quickly create a backup of any file by e-mailing it to yourself. That's the idea behind Backup to Email, which makes it a simple two-step process. Just right-click any file, then choose Backup to Email; the software instantly ferries the file to your Gmail account. (It should really be called Backup to Gmail.) It even splits files larger than 10MB.


This is one of those head-smacking, why-didn't-anyone-think-of-this-sooner utilities. I've long advocated the idea of backing up important files by e-mailing them to yourself. I'll often do that after working hours on a feature--just in case my hard drive chooses that moment to die.


Backup to Email works like a charm and saves me having to create and address a new e-mail every time I want to make an on-the-fly backup. It's free and Windows-compatible. ? Rick Broida
