Please could someone help me out here. I just don't know where to start.
There comes a time in your computing life when if like me you have been bad at organizing your data you reach a crunch point. I have reached that point. Here's the rub.
I have about 1.5 terabytes of files spread over 3 drives. A lot of it is duplicated (one thing I have done is back up!). I've probably only really got about 0.5 terabyte of unique files. I just can't remember where the original stuff is. What if I go delete one of the drives and find out that was were I put Chrismas 2007 photos? Now I've moved to imac things are getting worse cos I'm not entirely sure where all the physical files are kept!
Anyone know of any 'consolidation' software which will look at the three drives and consolidate into one with just the most recent version of a file kept? Or anygood data housekeeping websites out there to advise?
When I have consolidated then I can think about backup again...but just be more structured and systematic this time around!
PS - I know this isn't about saving money....but it might just save my sanity....then I can go find the best value Firewire 800 enabled 2 tb external drive.....later.
