Organizing my CLEP stuff
#1
Does anyone else get that really good feeling after cleaning up an area on your hard drive? Like you just cleaned the whole house? I spent hours last night renaming and organizing all of my study guides and documents related to CLEP, SL, etc. I love it, everything is so pretty now. Smile

I still have to clean up the actual study guides, but at least my folders are clean. If anyone wants to swap guides I would love to add to my collection so I can help my younger brother out when he takes tests.

(Sigh) I got to clean up after the kids make a mess of the house, it's like this daily :p
Anyways, I should also cleanup my room as its a bit of a mess too, :coolgleam:
But, I gotta love working at home, the freedom is well worth it over the pay and other benefits.
If I ever go for another job, I'll have to make sure telecommuting is an option!

I always like to keep my PCs well-organized. It makes finding things quicker and easier, and it's simply a good feeling to have consistent naming conventions and logical groupings of folders and files. Once you're done organizing your files, be sure to back up all the important stuff!
Course clear! You got a card.

That's good advice, I just backed up my iPad and iPhone pictures to my PC and also the second hard drive I use for backup purposes.

Backing up now, thanks for the reminder. What's the point in having a 5TB external when I always forget to use it. I've had many hard drives fail on me so I'm always afraid I'll lose my data

My 2TB hard drive just died, and my husband is going to try to figure out if we can get the data off of it. Makes me think I actually need 2 of these stupid things instead of just 1?!? I thought using it was a smart move, now I feel like an idiot.

That's what happened to my previous computer with all the pictures we wanted, couldn't get it restored or data retrieved from it as it fried from heat.
So, I have two 2TB external drives doing the data backup, and a 2 TB drive internal for general storage. I have an SSD for just windows use, it's faster.

As a side note, for those techies out there, I don't think the "Hybrid" drives are that much better than a regular hard drive and separate SSD.
As I like to keep things sorted, I use the SSD for Windows and installed programs, the hard drive for storage of applications/doc files/pictures.

For your really important stuff (family photos, other irreplacable documents) the cloud providers offer some amount of space for free. I use both MS OneDrive and DropBox for that since they will automatically sync anything in the directory you setup. I used to manually sync my important stuff to a thumbdrive with synctoy but it just got too tedious.

OneDrive offers 15G for free, Dropbox offers 2G.

If you're really serious about it and you keep your external drives plugged in all the time (or have a NAS) -- do yourself a favor and just get some real backup software. FWIW, I'm partial to Nortion Ghost.
