System Spring Cleaning & Sorting

The sudden release of free hard drive space had also got me to do a kind of ‘spring leaning’ for my computer. The absence of enough free space had prevented me from sorting of the assorted files that I have saved on my drive (for the past 3.5 years) and sometimes I can’t find files that I am looking for.

I’ve also deleted quite a few files (mostly videos), that I really didn’t want to delete, in the interest of saving space and downloading more files (again mostly  videos). It was a case of which ones were more important to me to keep. Remember, I only have an 80 GB capacity HDD and, before getting the 320 GB external, a 120 GB portable hard drive. With tv series downloads being at 350 an episode (in the case of Stargate: Atlantis, Star Trek Enterprise & Star Trek : TOS) space was at a premium.

So the last couple of days have seen me spending quite a lot of time sorting out my files and storing them into different folders on all 3 drives. I now need to clean out the internal drive and defrag it. I was also thinking of backing up all the files that I need into the 320 GB and formatting my hard disk.

Arsenal 3 Burnley 1

Arsenal defeated Burnely 3-1 last night to level on points with second-placed Chelsea. Cesc Fabregas opened the scoring when he slotted in from close range but soon afterwards he was forced off injured. Burnley equalised when David Nugent latched on to Leon Cort’s header and looped the ball over Manuel Almunia.

Theo Walcott curled in a sublime shot to ease the embarrassment of Nicklas Bendtner’s awful finishing before Andrey Arshavin rifled in a third. The result takes Arsenal to within two points of leaders Manchester United, who won at Wolves 1-0 later on Saturday. The Gunners are level on points with Chelsea but have an inferior goal difference and have played one game more than both their title rivals.
