We’ve launched a new free cloud storage package that enables your to have a virtual cloud
STEP 1: Register for the GMail + S3 package
file system based on a combination of Amazon S3 and GMail. In this free package you get
250 MB free on Amazon S3 and can also choose to store files on a GMail account. You can
see all files through the SMEStorage virtual file system.
The steps you need to take for this package are:
STEP 2: Activate your account
STEP 3: Login and go to My Account -> My Providers
STEP 4: if you wish to Use Gmail as well as Amazon S3 add the Gmail provider
STEP 5: Enter your GMail account information. We store this as encrypted information in
This information is then authenticated against GMail
STEP 6: Finally, you are ready to sync. If any files already exist in the GMail account they will be
sync’d to SMEStorage cloud file system
DONE !: You can now see the imported files available in the SMEStorage cloud file explorer.
When you go to upload file to your cloud you now have the option to store them on
SMEStorage S3 or on Gmail, and of course you can still encrypt files for each platform
The SMEStorage platform now supports Google Mail for Cloud Storage. What does this mean ? It means that when you establish a Google email account and pair it with SMEStorage you can use the Google email account for file storage and data access via the SMEStorage platform.
All files stored will be able to be used with the SMEStorage Windows File Manager, iPhone, iGoogle, Facebook etc, and can be integrated with Microsoft Office, Open Office, Zoho Office, iPaper, and Picnik for imaging editing etc.
As we provide a consolidation layer and API on top of cloud storage platform, this means you can do some really cool stuff like import your Amazon S3 files to Google, or export your Google emails and files to Amazon S3. As we also support AOL XDrive, you can also import your AOL XDrive files to Google.
Here is how to start:
1. First Establish a Google Account
2. Next Register for a new SMEStorage Account. Make sure that your register for the GMail package. Once you have validated your account, login and enter your Google details. If you have existing emails and file attachments in your account these will be imported. It can be a good idea to start a separate Google Email account for your stored files if you want to use Google email as your cloud storage
3. Next Enter your Google Details.
These details will be checked and then you will have the option to save the details. If you choose to save them they will be encrypted and saved. If you choose not to save them you will have to enter them every time you access your SMEStorage account.
Once you click continue you may have to wait a while if you have a lot of files / email as SMEStorage syncs with GMail. If this is a new GMail account you have just created then this step will be quick.
That’s it ! You can now upload files to Gmail via SMEStorage. All your files will be stored in GMail and accessible also via the GMail platform.
