My MacBookAir hard drive is FULL and I need to empty it.

This is mostly due to
1-My enormous Gmail size (imported as IMAP containing work emails and attachments back to 2008)
2-My recently imported wedding photos

I need you to
1-Archive or store my OLD GMAILS so they are somehow accessible but do not take all my hard drive space (compressed or on an external hard drive or not imported into my Mac, ie. stored in GMail only are all acceptable solutions)
2-Help me move all my PHOTOS to an external hard drive or my other MacBook (bigger hard drive), still connecting to my iPhoto (in either Air or bigger Mac)
3- Connect a hard drive with all my MUSIC to iTunes (Air or Mac), plus import a few tunes (really small recent additions) from iPhone and Macs

I will pay for a simple elegant solution that will solve my troubles all at once, and that I can continue using with my iPhone, MacBookAir and home-based Mac. I may consider buying a Time Capsule if you recommend so.

Please, drop a message and explain how you are planning to solve the above.
Alternatively, I am happy to pay by the hour at around $30/hr, I estimated it should take ~4hours tops, but happy to discuss.

Drop me a note! Thanks
Cedric L.

Cloud solutions can also have the advantage of being effectively an offsite backup in case things at your house are list/stolen etc. External hard drives can be a cheap and easy alternative, and then your main choices become whether you'll want to have them be physically small and easily portable or not, and whether you'll need to access or add data to the drive from multiple operating systems or not.
Hi Marta, not sure why you can't see my profile ? I can do afternoons tomorrow or Friday. Most cloud storage solutions have a fee attached over a certain limit, it depends on what you can afford and also how much it matters to you to be able to access those files from anywhere.

Sounds good, Cedric. Come over tomorrow and I'll have plenty of external hard drives at hands and my best motivation to learn this uploading and downloading mystery to keep my data under control...
