Thanks for the comments, all.
I ended up using Dropbox. Git was a bit too confusing for me, and I ended up giving up on it. I also heard that it's not the place for PSD files etc.
I've been hot-desking a couple of times. Just once a week. I have to say the very worst part is working on my 12" Macbook as opposed to my dual screen 27" iMac setup I have at home. Neck and back in particular get tired / sore.
Otherwise, I think it's a good idea if you're looking for something different.

I've had experience in this area, and it's tricky. Basically what has been said so far is all good advice.
I wouldn't bad mouth the client. As tempting as it might be, it also doesn't make you look great. So, I'd stay away from that.
Get onto it quickly, be methodical and extremely persistent. Try avenues, and talk to legal people to see what your options are. Consider if the outlay is worth your financial stress.
Don't take anything else as a payment if they offer.
All emails written are a form of contract too – this is good to know.
It's a terrible time, I really feel for you. I happened to me not so long ago and was / is extremely exhausting.

I never thought of a Git repository. Thanks for that – I'll have a look into it.
I was thinking of using Back to My Mac, which allows me to access files from my iMac. But, after a long time talking to Apple, it sounds like the majority of networks will be firewalled and therefore, not allow me to access my home network. I haven't tried it yet though.
