Manage Your Digital Self - Files

Does your desktop look like this? It's time to clean it up and organize you files! And then back them up to Dropbox or Google Drive.



  • Adopt consistent methods for file and folder naming. When learning how to manage files and folders, it is important that you develop a naming scheme for the kinds of files you create most often and then stick to it. To change an existing file or folder name, right-click the name in the folder structure. Click Rename, and then type the new name.
  • Put your files in the cloud - Dropbox  is a free service that lets you bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and share them easily. Never email yourself a file again!

    • Shared folders allow people to work together on the same projects and documents.

      • Invite friends, family or teammates to a folder. It'll be as if you saved the folder to their computers.
      • See other people's changes instantly.
      • Create photo galleries viewable by anyone you choose.
      • Send a link to any file in your Dropbox using your Public folder.
  • Try Google Drive - another option for stashing your stuff in the cloud. It's a beefed-up version of Google Docs. You can store your documents, photos, music, videos, etc. all in one place. It syncs with your mobile devices and your computer, so if you make a change from one gadget, it will automatically show up if you were to access it elsewhere.


  •  Backup your files with Carbonite or Mozy and never worry about losing your files again.
    • Carbonite is a simple, safe online backup service for casual home computer users, students, home office users, business travelers, etc. For less than five dollars a month, Carbonite will back up all the irreplaceable data on your computer (digital photos, music, office documents, and other valuable files) whenever your computer is connected to the Internet.
    • Mozy is an online backup service that allows both Windows and Mac users to back up an unlimited amount of data and files to offsite servers. The cloud service allows users to back up data continuously, manually or schedule updates.
