How We Starchive

Like all moms, I have a million things going on at once. From incredible work projects, to capturing amazing family memories (my baby crawling for the first time, my daughter registering for kindergarten, my husband slaying a guitar solo — ah, life is good!), to managing household paperwork (finances, health care, registration forms…you know, the less fun stuff), to passionately engaging in volunteer projects — I’ve got a lot of media to keep track of.

Starchive gives me one easy place to collect, access, and share all the digital stuff that I care about. Recently, while on the go, I had to find and deliver my kids’ most recent vaccination records and the clock was ticking. While in the past this would’ve required a trip to the file-cabinet-of-doom (ok, a little dramatic but seriously, physical files still?) and an attempt at remembering how I would’ve filed those records, Starchive made this ridiculously simple with a quick search and share. What would’ve taken me 15-30 minutes took me 3 minutes. Saving time? Easy to use solutions? Yes, please.

Here’s a handy overview of what goes into an upload to help you estimate how long it might take to move your media into the cloud.
