I just installed GMail Drive and I would like to sync it with my Dropbox account however there is no drive letter assigned to the Gmail Drive so I can I CD to it via the DOS prompt?

I am trying to create a symlink using the mklink command.

Has anyone successfully accomplished this?

You're trying to break the Internet, aren't you? – JMD Dec 11 '09 at 22:42
you do realize that gmail will cripple any file bigger than 25 MB, limiting its use for what you have in mind quite signifacntly. – Molly7244 Dec 11 '09 at 23:09

I'm not sure if this will work, but have you tried assigning a drive letter to the GMail Drive using the Disk Management Tool (Computer -> Manage -> Storage -> Disk Management)?
