When it comes to a file organizer there are about as many different kind of organizers as there are ways to organize your files.
One of the first things you have to do is decide where your files should be kept. Can your files all be kept online or do you need a hard copy instead. Many people feel it’s best to not only keep your files on line but to keep a hard copy elsewhere. The redundancy of doing both ensures that your files are always safe. If you have a fire that wipes out your hard copies at least you have them online. At the same time if you get a computer virus that wipes out those files at least you still have hard copies.
If you have decided to store your files online you will need to decide just how you will go about doing that. Computers crash, get viruses, and sometimes get stolen. If you keep important files on an external hard drive or a thumb or flash drive you will still have them absent your computer. You can however lose hard drives and flash drives as well. It’s not a bad idea to email yourself all your files and do so with new ones every month. That way if you lose your computer or any external devices you have information on you will still have that information.
Online storage sights are fine but many cost money to store your files. Should you run into financial hardship and can no longer afford the monthly fees you’re stuck unless you emailed your files.
