I've heard about the DNG file format. I heard it creates a lot of large files, maybe double the number, that fills up your remote HD.

Not sure where you heard that, it is incorrect. DNG files are about 25% smaller than equivalent NEF files. Also, your editing programs can write directly into them so no more sidecar files as when you use NEFs.  One image, one file.

https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/adobe-dng-converter.html will get you to DNG from NEF, no data or quality loss.  It does batches and so is reasonably okay to put into your workflow.  And it is free of charge.
