Backup using Gmail storage?

Hi there!

Does anyone know if it's possible to backup directly to the Gmail storage?

It seems to me that Gmail storage is different from Google Drive.

Background: if you ran out of storage on Google Drive, you can still upload attachments in Gmail which to me tells me that it must be a different storage.

Thoughts?

... some people literally have over 100TB of data on Workspace (google drive) and you are worried about running out of space?
Secondly Google cloud data for pictures and gmaiæ got heavily redused no so long ago: https://support.google.com/googleone/answer/9312312?hl=en.

In short; no. Its not possible with rclone to upload to your regular account storage

I'm pretty sure that they are accounted together now-a-days so gmail storage is part of your 15GB free allocation.

Understood, thanks guys!

i have a script that i use for backups, it use https://sourceforge.net/projects/swithmail/, to send emails with attachments.

another option is to 7zip the files and email that as an attachment.
