Spring Cleaning

My Intel based imac is only about a year old, is named the Pink Panther and has a 250gig HD. Less than a year from getting him I have already used 136gigs of space. I know what you’re thinking. “Big deal, 136 gigs isn’t much.” I can understand that train of thought. I personally have a TB and 500gig external HD at home with only 138mb left on the 500gig and the TB HD is being filled up pretty fast. Regardless, 136gigs for what I do at DDA is a lot. I don’t work with many 4gig file projects, like at home; mostly web design files that range from 150-200mbs and print design files that range from 200-500mbs. I think I may have a few tradeshow graphic or billboard files that are over the 1gig mark. So with only 94GB left on the Pink Panther, I am finding that now is the time to archive! Yes, the dreaded ‘A’ word, archive. It’s not as bad as it sounds. I am currently organizing all files so that any one in the future can navigate through and find what they need pretty easily. No need to thank me.

I can’t wait to see how much space I can free up as I archive and back up all my files. So far I’ve only gained back 5GB…
