This chore has been finished since the 21st and, so far, I’m happy with it. My previous file structure was by type of record and then broken down by the four surnames of my grandparents. I can’t explain why that ever seemed like a good idea but it must have years ago when I set it up. I’ve wanted to change things for a long time but dreaded doing it because everything was already backed up to Mozy and thousands of files were linked to sources or events in my Legacy Family Tree database using that structure.
I have been using the basic 2 GB Dropbox (which is free) for a year or so but mostly as a clearinghouse to transfer files to the other computers or to share large numbers of files with other researchers. I only kept a few things (like backups of my Legacy database and a spreadsheet of login info for all accounts) there permanently. I have now upgraded to the 50 GB option at a cost of $99/year. I think the convenience is going to be well worth $8.25 a month.
Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with Mozy, Legacy Family Tree or Dropbox. However, if you click on the Dropbox link and sign up for an account, I will get some free space (500 MB) added to my Dropbox account but so will you (250 MB).
