Many h+h clients share their files with me via their Dropbox account. I love this method for a two reasons:
1) While I love seeing old clients and meeting news ones, the ease of simply downloading files is certainly more convenient. There is no pick-up and drop-off to figure out and no transportation costs.
2) When a client uses Dropbox, they are safeguarding/backing up their files in could-based programs. Many of us have our files secured in devices (internal/external hard drive, USB stick, etc.) The scary thing is that devices fail. And when they fail, we lose our files. It's one terrible nightmare. I always recommend that clients back up their files on both an external hard drive and a cloud-based solution, like Dropbox.
But now there's another reason to get a Dropbox paid account:
3) They just increased the storage on the Pro Plan to 1 TB (that's 1,000 GBs) for the same price ($9.99/month or $99/year) . With 1 TB of space, you should be able to fit YEARS of your footage on Dropbox's servers. You'll be able to access your files from any computer and be able to share them with whomever you want.
Now, there are plenty of other options out there besides Dropbox. Google has its own version, so does Microsoft, so does Apple, etc. I'm sure they're all as good (and possible less expensive). Since I've only used Dropbox, I cannot comment on the others but they will surely do the same effective job of safeguarding all your digital files.
It might be difficult to find time to upload all of your photos and videos with everything already going on in your life. But when you think of the alternative, when you think about losing all the photos and videos of your growing children, you make the time. They are just too precious to lose and too important to trust to a simple piece of hardware that might not last through the years.
