Save Your Gmail Attachments to Google Drive Directly from Your Inbox [Google Chrome Extension]

Are you tired of having to manually download attachments from Gmail before you can add them to your Google Drive account? Then cut through all the hassle and add those attachments directly from your Inbox to your Google Drive account with the Gmail Attachments To Drive extension.

Once you have the extension installed and have refreshed your Gmail Tab (if you had it open before installation), simply click on the Save To Drive Link and within moments you will see the following message confirming the upload to your Google Drive (Docs) account.

Items uploaded from your Inbox are deposited into the main My Drive Folder Area and can be moved as desired or needed from there.

    @Saumil – I checked the Mozilla add-ons site and did not find anything similar to this there. :( Hopefully there will be one for Firefox in the future though…

    I was just looking for this, this afternoon!

    I used a script from elsewhere and it kept auto-saving all my attachments. But once the emails started to thread, it kept auto-saving multiple copies of the same file.

    This solves that, so i can choose what to save!
