Wayne,

I've held off putting my files into any storage 'vault' for reasons of security and cost.

Is there a way you could do something like a vault that would be economical for us and make some money for yourself?

Love this forum and if there is a way for you to make the money and help us at the same time, I'm all for it! I'd rather give the biz to you.

Pamela I am not really sure what you mean by storage vault, would you explain please?

I think you mean somewhere to maintain a duplicate copy of your files?

. Thanks for thinking of me, I am all for making money if the situation is right.

Yes, that's what I mean. Check out e-domina. They have an online vault to store a backup of appraisal files. I'd rather pay you if it's something you can do securely and economically for us while making some money for yourself. Safer than backing up to a different hard drive that's right here where the original is.

(Now stop cutting us off in the middle of high activity!) 8O

I don't have the fancy interface that edomina has, but I could set up a storage area that would be as secure as there is I think. The problem is that there are a number of things I could do, but I am only one person and don't have the time (or don't want to devote all my spare time) to Internet and computer work. I have many ideas for services to benefit appraisers and lots ideas have come from the forum.

So I guess I will pass on it. I just don't want to get to the point that I have to hire help. Been there, done that, (in appraisals and real estate brokerage) and don't want to go through it again. Just want to keep what I can look after myself, and what I enjoy. When it stops being fun, I'll stop doing it.

That wasn't me that was some sort of network routing issue. I did a trace route and about two hops before my server there was a problem that seems to be corrected now.

Congratulations on being promoted from Aspiring Forumite to Forumite!

Well, I can't argue with that at all.

Now that I'm a 'full fledged forumite', what are the next 2 levels?

Thanks,

You'll have to wait and be surprised!

Seriously I would entertain suggestions for the levels. I think "newbie" and "aspiring forumite" are okay, got any suggestions for the others?

Pamela and wayne (any others too),

The BEST file storage, in my :twisted: opinion is burning your "native format" files to CD (maybe in the futur that will be DVD. Once you burn it to disc take it OFF SITE; safe deposite box, friends house, other office or wherever...you could make duplicates. That way, when you NEED a good back-up of your files you have them. My mom uses e-domania but i cannot justify the added expense. You can also archive on disc; put one year....one county....etc.

Thanks for the forum Wayne...the new formate is VERY NICE,

Pam,
If you have a lot to store, there is a small business in my area called Data Survival, Inc. 706-677-1078 or 677-2779 You can store any data (or your whole computer) on their system. It is encripted so that no one but you will know what is there. It is an interesting system, you can set it so that it will back up your files over the internet at 3:00am every morning. It does not back up your whole system everyday, just the files that were changed. Pricing is reasonable, they gave me an estimate of about $65 per month for every thing on my computer. But that changes with how much you have stored, I have a bunch!!! What is really neat is it can almost act like a network. If you are out of the office and you need something off of your computer, you can log in on your lap top and down load it from the server.

They also do document storage, but I think that you may be able to find someone closer to you than north GA for that service.

Mell.
