4 Organizational Tools For Your Computer
In order to be productive you need to make sure you keep your computer organized. Recently I attended an event where a number of speakers gave away free gifts.
It’s easy to download these items but you need to be aware of where they are and how much storage they are taking up.
Of major concern to many is keeping their passwords safe.
1) Lastpass. It’s a popular tool for passwords. It can not only remember your password but it can also generate passwords. You can then organize these passwords and put the in a “vault”. By creating a “vault key” you are the only one that has access to the information. Lastpass comes with two options: paid and free.
2) Roboform. There are some similiarities to Lastpass. Besides generating new passwords it can also fill out online forms for you, which will help you save time.
Roboform will also work on all your devices.
In previous posts I’ve discussed online storage solutions. I’ve heard people saying that since they have digital cameras they can take as many photos as they want.
That’s wonderful but those photos can take up a large portion of your hard drive. So you might need tool number 3.
3) Skydrive: it will help you free up space on your hard drive. My understanding is that Skydrive comes with all newer Windows computers. They offer free storage (7 GB) so you can place your photos and documents online. You also have the ability to access your information when you are offline.
Their pricing structure appears to be really affordable even if you are looking for storage for your business.
4) Google Drive. Your Google account gives you 5GB’s of free storage in the cloud.
If you don’t have a Google account you can create one. There are many benefits to having a Google account such as taking advantage of Google+ and more.
There are options popping up all the time offering cloud storage. Take the time to check out their features.
There’s no doubt about it. We live in a world of information.
When you take a look at the amount of information you currently have on your hard drive you might be checking out one of these options right away.
Keep in mind that the more information you have on your hard drive the slower your computer will run.
Here’s a great tip. Create a folder on your desktop for information you’ve downloaded. Once a day or once a week take that folder and upload it to your cloud based storage. This will help you keep more organized and free up that all important hard drive space.
Be Savvy and Successful!
