How do I manage My Computer? [closed]

Posted on

QUESTION :

My Computer is completely cluttered with folders and highly disorganized.
Today, I wanted to take a backup but I couldn’t because I didn’t know what to backup and what not to, and I did not want to backup unwanted stuff…
Is there any tool (preferably open-source/freeware) that I could use to organize the folders on my computer?

ANSWER :

As said, it’s up to you. But tools like Overdisk can help you by visualising a disk. The brilliant Everything will search for it, and a good explorer type tool like Free commander will help you to put files and folders where you want them.

No automated tool is going to be able to figure out what you want to back up and what you don’t want to without you telling it.

Like the other guys have said there’s nothing that’s going to automate this and in most cases the onus is on you. I think the best approach to take will be to list down all the progams that you use and then locate all files on your computer. I’m sure you would know where you keep them and the way to go is to first backup everything that you know and where you saved them. In most cases that’d be fine but you may want to make backups of other things like email, etc, for which it’s best if you take this as a step two and then post to the community for help if you get stuck.

The right idea is to mark the apps that you use most and then try to find a way to back them up. Hope this helps!
