How organized is your PC hard drive?

ok.. in another thread I posted that I was changning browsers n stuff.. now today I imported my addressbook..

well.. thats one messy situation!

also, thoughout my HD I have random dropped MP3s... wich makes them quite difficult to find.

I don't erase un-wanted emails, so I have over 3000 emails in my inbox.

My MSN Contact list is maxxed out at 150 contacts... and I don't know who half of them are.

There are 30 un-used Icons on my desktop

I have no real photo album from all the pics I have taken.. just folders randomly placed in my documents, on the desktop, or on my website directory


The main reson it's soo messy is because most of the time I'm rushed when I'm doing work and just drop files in the closest place to the cursor.

:D

i have 1 icon on my desktop...
everything else is in the dock, or on the menu bar....

oh, wait...I'm on a mac.

I do reccomend disk warrior for help cleaning and organizing when things get too confusing.

mine is pretty anal to be honest, but my home system has 8 machines and over 20 drives.





everything is nested in little directories of shortcuts that lead the real directories. I drop stuff on to the desktop and then sort it down later.

Never install directly from a download, never install to the default directory.

I have about 300 icons on my desktop and hard disks rammed with all manner of things I think I will use some day. I am a pack rat.

In the basement I have boxes and boxes of vintage software On original floppies! Corel 1 Photoshop 1,... and other such gems.

Very organized...only a couple icons on my desktop and programs that I use. I can't stand a messy computer. And I have no qualms about deleting shit I don't need/use. Same thing goes with stuff in my apartment.

I've been told I should switch to Mac, cause apparently my desktop 'looks' like that of a Mac user. :p

For your mp3s, get a program called Advanced Mp3 Catalog Pro. Use Adobe Photoshop Album v2.0 for your photos.

C:\ windows, linux and major MS programs
D:\ extraneous stuff like web graphics and programs downloaded off the net
E:\ MP3s and Videos

notice the absence of icons on the desktop and in the system tray.

You know, I've never really understood the point of having a nice picture as a desktop, since you don't see it unless everything is minimized... which means you aren't doing anything on the computer, except sitting in front of it, and thus wouldn't it make more sense to have a slide show or something?

The pic wasn't exactly my choice. It comes with the shell's skin.

lol

very funny.

it's nice to look at it quickly though... whatever it is that you have as a desktop picture.

Well bill, after demolishing the unnecessary bits of gyp-rock, we cut out a proper doorway... errr...

I use Aston. The skin itself is called "[techno] No Escape"
