Sharing a specific folder

I have a folder where i'm storing the files i'm working on, i also have a partner who is working on the same files.. who is in a different state than me. So I need a way for him to access the folder on my hard drive so that we are up-to-date and using the same files. What would be the best way for him to access these files.. VNC? some type of online application? remote desktop?

thanks for any input
