Best File and Photo Storage Options
I'm in the process of organizing my family documents and photos of the last 10 years. Unfortunately we have not had any systematic protocols in place and it's all a pretty big mess of various hard drives, flash memory, some more recent I-phone cloud storage etc. We never used an online service for backing up photos so most of it is in various folders on hard drives. I'd love to hear from you organized families out there what you use for A) Photos and B) Document back up. My plan is to store everything on some new hard drives and back it all with an online storage. For our documents I've been thinking of opening a google account for document storage ONLY and pay a one time annual fee for say 200GB and fill it up to full capacity and then stop paying. I don't want to have to continue transferring files to free up space or keep paying year after year. I may consider an upgrade to the storage if need be but the big question is what happens when you fill up your storage space and stop paying? Can the files just permanently live there? It seems from the google description that you can still access your files just not add anything or send and receive any e-mails but that should be fine since the account would be for storage purposes only. Any thoughts?
