Keep It Clean
Keeping your hard drive clean is not as difficult as it may seem. If you spend just a little time on this task on a regular basis, the build up of unwanted bits and bytes should never get too far out of hand. The ways in which you can clean up your drive vary from simply deleting unwanted files and information to completely wiping your hard drive clean of all existing data.
The latter is best left to those occasions where you might want to sell your computer or drive, if you're experiencing serious technical problems that warrant starting with a completely clean hard disk, or perhaps if you've been the victim of a malicious program such as spyware, thereby compromising the security of your personal information.
If for some reason you need to take drastic measures and you're not sure how to do it, seek advice from one of the many columns available on the web or from an expert that's closer to home. If your needs require you to simply keep your drive clean of unnecessary buildup of data, there are also many web-based advice columns, as well as programs, available to make the task of doing a clean up quicker and easier.
Locating and removing data ranging from Temp files to outdated emails to unnedessary and unwanted files can help you keep your hard drive clean. It's as easy as 1-2-3 if you take the time to learn how, and take the time to fall into a regular clean up routine.
