Question for iPad users

9 replies
I do lots of pictures and videos, but storing them on the iPad or my computer takes up too much space. How do you guys handle storage of videos and pics?

    Google Drive, Dropbox, etc, etc...

    If you really have huge storage needs, Amazon S3 is very affordable.

    If you want to keep it local, get yourself 1 or more external hard drives or NAS. 2-3TB external drives are pretty affordable right now.

  • Sellercompanion,

    Michael has some good suggestions. Those are all great free services. If you want to have access to your stuff without an internet connection, you could look into an external hard drive. You can get huge ones now for not that much money.

    Best,

    Shawn

    Actually there are TB storage existing now and it is very very affordable. You can have 2TB storage for $50 less.

    If you don't want to be in a hardware thingy you can also avail the google drive I think and also the dropbox.

    But I suggest you store it on the physical hardware in which the transfer rate is very fast unlike internet based file storage and transfer.

    I just got a third party device that lets me plug Flash Cards, HD Drives etc into my IPad for images. I grabbed it cheap off an auction site ( probably made in China ). Something like that might help ?

    Dropbox are too expensive and losing out to much cheaper competition. Take Amazon Cloud Drive for example. $50 a year for 100GB, whereas DropBox is $120 a year. Only trouble is there are no native apps from Amazon to access your cloud drive files, only your photographs which is a real shame, so not really sure if any of that helped at all.

    Copy.com will give you 20gigabytes of space if you go through another user's referral or 15 gb of space if you register on your own.

    Also another 2gb of space if you tweet about it.

    Above is my copy.com referral I do get free space in return.

    Dropbox only gives you 2gigabytes to start out with so maybe this larger amount helps.
