......it was nothing compared to my Computer!!!! I have spent the last 3 hours working on cleaning up and reorganizing my files.....and I haven't even begun to touch the thousands of digital pictures I have. I've basically dumped all of those into one folder and will work on them another time.
What prompted this? Well, when the PC starts slowing down, you know its time to take action. MY PC isn't the latest, fastest edition but it is just over a year old and has LOTS of memory so it shouldn't be bogging down the way it is. In perusing my hard drive, I noticed that I had 2 & 3 copies of some files --- PLUS .zip files for the same items. No wonder I'm having problems.
As soon as the last of my photo files are copied into the one folder, I will be doing a backup of my hard drive onto my Passport portable HD followed by a defrag of the PC hard drive. Hopefully these steps will speed things back up!
I could use any tips/hints any of you have for keeping your computer files organized - I obviously need some help in this department!
