We all know that keeping things organized during the school year is tough. This goes for every aspect of our lives. However, too often we will let our digital files get wildly out of control. With virtually everything in class these days happening on our computers, we don’t truly realize how easy it is to lose track of files until we’re scrambling at the very last moment to find them amongst a sea of documents.
A very wise investment for college would be a portable hard drive. These are especially helpful for backing up all of your files in general, as well. You never know when surfing on an unsecure network at the local coffee shop could end up giving your computer a nasty virus that requires you to restore your entire system to factory settings. Back up as often as you can so you won’t lose precious documents. Having a portable hard drive makes this extremely easy and also allows you to delete old, useless files and free up space all while keeping them on the side.
Tackling an organization task like managing your digital files may seem scary at first, but the thing to keep in mind is yourself. What works for you? What can you do to make things easiest for you? With these questions in mind and the advice above about taking on the job, you should be well on your way to having complete and total control over the organization of all of your digital data.
