It’s happening, like it happens to all of us: My hard disk is getting full, and although the free space would have seemed like an ocean just a decade ago, now it’s a worryingly small pool of tiny little gigabytes. I could try freeing up some by tediously going through all the photos I never bothered to cull before, but with Gb-sized videos being added on a regular basis, that isn’t a long term solution. Where long term is anything that will tide me over to my next laptop.
But, what if I could offload some of those files to some other storage medium? I’m not really that fond of external hard disks, but perhaps a file server? Great! You mount some remote directory, and it’s like it’s right there on your machine.
