How To Effectively Organise Your PC’s Storage

Got questions on how to make the most of the space available on your PC or feel like you need more for school work? Do these five things to effectively organise your PC’s storage and you’ll be sorted.

1. Clean Off The Dust

The physical dust on your PC can do a lot more harm than you can think of. Just how malware can ruin your PC, the physical dust stuck inside can reduce the hardware’s long-term durability. You can start with a cloth and cleaning solution or take a fail-safe sticky note to clean the keyboard, mouse, monitor and accessories. Just make sure you turn off everything before starting the cleanup.

2. Clear Your Hard Drives

We tend to download multiple files on a daily basis. But do you still need them? To clean up, go through your folders and delete anything which is duplicated, not relevant anymore or simply spammy in nature. You will be surprised by how much storage you were holding on to.

3. Reshuffle Your Files

Have you ever heard of Disk Defragmentation? It may sound like a difficult term but it’s just a simple process of sorting all the files in your storage into a neat and orderly fashion by collecting your scattered files to optimise your hard disk, thus, making your PC function better and in turn faster.

4. Declutter Your Inbox

Your PC’s storage is not the only thing which needs your attention. Check out your inbox[s] to clean out spam or emails that are of no use anymore. Also, don’t forget to check unimportant emails in other folders which did not make their way to the Spam folders so your inbox is perfectly organised and has enough space.

5. Let Go Of Unused Programs

The Control Panel is an easy way to uninstall things that you don’t really need. Go to the ‘Add or Remove Programs’ section, identify the software[s] you don’t require and free up some much-needed space in your PC.

Now that you’re sorted with storage space, it’s time to learn what’s inside your computer!
