Is it possible to "map network drive" for Google Drive so it appears as a usual Windows drive in Explorer?
(And on a Mac and Linux?)
No just a folder. Well you could use the subst command to map a folder as drive letter I guess. Haven't tested it, google drive might do something special, syntax wrong somewhere etc.
Change "username" to your user name of course. Run at startup using a bat-file perhaps i autostart or similar.
I'm curious, why a drive, not OK with just a folder? Multiple users sharing perhaps? If so permissions might be needed to be set.
Update: I got curious and tried it and it seems to work.
Linux support is on its way apparently. and will no doubt use webdav (possibly FTP too). Windows, OSX and Linux all support mounting webdav based file systems (you use davfs2 under linux).
There will also be a syncing client for linux that means the files will be available when the network is not (the same way the Windows and OSX clients work).
