Large storage capacity
Although you probably don’t want to archive your entire photo collection dating back 10 years, it will certainly be enough space to keep your most valued photos, documents, and other files in a safe place.
Not only are you backing up your files for safety, but now they are always accessible to you wherever you go. College students who work on a home desktop and later need to print their papers at school, will often be glad they had a failsafe stored on their email account if they forgot to transfer the file to their flash drive.
Since you won’t be storing these files locally on an external hard drive, you’re not risking the chance of loosing them by improper handling of the fragile device or a catastrophe like a fire or theft.
Gmail is known for their ability to organize emails very efficiently. Use folders and color coding to create a complex yet easily navigable system to access your stored data.
Does anyone else find this to be a useful method?
