There are other ways of doing so as well.  Media collections on blogs,

Unless it takes forever and a day to download an encrypted volume of
files and tools from where you've stashed it.  It's a bit of a gamble

volume will download in anything like a reasonable amount of time.
Found that one out the hard way late last year.
