Spring is almost here, to be exact the Spring Equinox is March 20th, and this is a great time of the year to start thinking about Spring Cleaning your computer. For at least the entire month I will be going over some great tips you can use to cleanup your computer. A little time invested now maintaining your computer will insure that you will get the most out of your investment.
As a former longtime Windows user and one who uses Windows machines at the office I can say definitively that I know a lot more tricks for keeping your windows computer running at it’s peak. I do not have too many tricks for the MAC. The MAC doesn’t seem to need as many tools to run at peak efficiency.
But before you start doing any kind of Spring Cleaning you should learn to backup your computer. Both Windows & MACS have integrated backup options. But for many of us who are mobile, travel a bit and live off a notebook, the best option is having an online backup. At $5 a month I consider an online backup as insurance for all my Music, Photo’s, Video’s and Documents.
There are many online backup services to consider. I’ll leave you with some info here about other online backup services, so check them out and next week I will start a series of Spring Cleaning posts that will walk you through a computer cleanup. Here are some Online Backup options:
