60GB! Wow, I might want to try Apple's iDisk. I don't store my photos on a network, but I thought I'd try to help out.

I was looking at MobileMe, but the price is pretty high for my storage needs. Thanks for the reply. Any other ideas?

It doesn't have to be just for photos. Im just looking to backup the files. If it has the ability to view those photos, that is just a bonus.

In that case try: http://www.megaupload.com/

You can upload big files to the website and save the links to retrieve the files in the future.

I'm currently using www.mozy.com
They are $5/month unlimited. The only problem they have is that if you delete a file in your computer, it will be deleted from the server after 30 days.

The other services I have been checking out are:
www.idrive.com
www.zumodrive.com
