Computer File Mayhem

pexels-photo-745409.jpegI thought about this mayhem this morning when I was organizing some files on my computer. Did you ever spend countless minutes looking for a file you need on your computer? You always promise that next time you will organize them in folders if you could please just find this one file. And they say computers are supposed to help us!!

So I decided today that I am going to set aside a morning soon to organize my files. I am going to set up folders in one section of my drive so I can easily find them. I didn’t tell you what day I was going to do this though. Should I put my files under This PC section or OnePC section? Or should I just put them on my external drive? And maybe I should just double save them. Or would it be easier to just do all my work on my Google Drive? Oh, but I could run out of space there and I don’t want to buy any more space. Too many questions to answer so I think I will just wait to organize my files.

I’m sure this same dilemma will arise tomorrow morning when I have to edit a piece I am working on or when I am writing a lesson plan for my next unit. It’s a problem that continues to grow and becomes more exasperating. Perhaps I should just continue to do all my writing on my IPad. What do you think about File Mayhem?

  1. I try – with moderate success – to organize my work into folders as I go. But, there are still those volumes of files that end up who knows where at the time, only to later be stumbled across and wonder what the heck I was thinking when I lost track of the file and if I still need it or should bother to try to fit it into some organizing file. Most of the time, it’s too much trouble.
