I would love to see some visuals and posts of some tricks and nice ways people keep all their files organized and clean. What are some good tips to make sure you dont have a bunch of extra crap living on your Hard Drive? How do you keep optimized?
I'm similar to howard for every folder except the documents folder. That folder is a huge mess right now - I need to clean it up. All of my music is neatly organized by format and/or source. My movies are organized by format, then source. Pictures are organized by source, since I don't care too much about the format.howard said:I'm fairly anal about where i put all my files. Everything goes into its designated folder..movies go into detailed set of folders... texts and and files that are from various programs...music editing..photoshop files..notation...spreadsheets...etc all go into there specific section and then get divided up into categories.
then in nearly every one of those proprietary file spots i have a sort of misc. folder if i don't know just yet where to put something.
WhatSize is an excellent tool for this. It shows you in a very useful visual way what is eating your HD space. I use it all the time.kjdenison said:What are some good tips to make sure you dont have a bunch of extra crap living on your Hard Drive?
