As many of you may have discovered, you are given access to your own Debian Linux shell account with 5GB of persistent storage when you sign up for Google’s GMail service, . You can access the console by visiting the Google Cloud Platform. The Debian systems are generated on the fly, and your 5GB of persistent storage is loaded into your home directory on startup. This article will walk you through expanding the 5GB or storage to 20GB by mounting Google Drive.
We will be using google-drive-ocamlfuse for mounting the remote drive from within our shell account. As the servers are dynamically generated on use, we need to install the tools and configure them each time that we access our shell account. Due to this, I have included a simple shell script that you can keep in your home directory for setting up the mount points (skip ahead).
