I am about to do some major cleaning and put stuff in closets and store it away for possible reference, but not daily use.
I'm talking about cleaning up my computer. These machines are much like our home or office. File folders need to be purged and cleaned up. I keep everything until the file closes and there are times, that I just need to clean it up before filing. My computer files are no different. I still have property photos on homes that I sold nearly a year ago. These are taking up valuable space in my harddrive. I can compress files and then archvive them and take up very little space. I can also drop the archives on a small thumb drive of 8 Gig or so.
I really need to do this a lot more often as I can tell a huge difference in the speed of my computer.
