This is possible with three new Custom Sensors available from the Google code project

Sensors DBUsage, SDUsage and GDUsage give you the usage statistics of your Dropbox, Skydrive and Google Drive account.

The sensors require an access token that can be obtained with the SDBToken Tool.

Once you obtained the token, enter it in the sensors commandline section like this:


The Skydrive and Google Drive sensors also need the sensor's ObjectID to be entered e.g.:

-id=1234 -t=dfny6903rkvetr2edj4354ffsg6

Tokens are unique for every sensor type and account that needs to be monitored.

The Skydrive, Dropbox and Google Drive sensors can be downloaded from this page.
