New feature: Emailing into Google Drive

7 Mar, 2013

posted by: admin

Today, we launched a new feature that lets you get stuff into your Google Drive by sending emails to your personal DAV-pocket email address. At this time, this feature is experimental.

How it works

First, create your DAV-pocket incoming email address in the Email Setting section of your User Settings page.

Next, try emailing something into DAV-pocket. Pick some files and attach them to your email. In the subject line of the email, write the title as you want (At this time, it is not necessarily needed). In the same subject line, you can add an @ symbol followed by the name of your destination folder.

For example,

Subject: @photos
Attachment Files: Photo1.png, Photo2.png

Would create two files 'Photo1.png' and 'Photo2.png' in 'photos' folder in your Google Drive. Note that this functionality only works for existing folder which is placed in the 'root' folder.

If you want to get the files into the 'root' folder, send the email with blank subject.

Resetting your email address

Your DAV-pocket incoming email is randomly generated to protect you from spam. If you ever want to change it to another random address, click 'Reset incoming email' in the Email Setting section of User Settings page.


DAV-pocket allows following operations.

  • Uploading files;
  • Uploading folders with files and subfolders;
  • Deleting objects;

  • Windows XP Web folder
  • Windows Vista Web folder
  • Windows 7 Network Place
  • GoodReader (iOS app)
  • Pages (iOS app) (registered users only)
  • Numbers (iOS app) (registered users only)
  • Known issues

    WebDAV MOVE method is not implemented yet, so rename operation from Windows XP is failed.

  • If a folder in Google Docs contains folders or files with duplicated name, some operation doesn't work well.


Google Drive Compatible


DAV-pocket Lab is a small project team developping WebDAV Server on Google App Engine.

If you have any suggestions on how to make this service better, We'd be interested in hearing what you have to say.
