Cleaning my laptop..

I love Dropbox. 😀 I’ve been cleaning my laptop and trying to organize all of my files, but moving them first to my desktop (~2TB’s of storage 😛 ).

Dropbox has been great so far since it works on Windows, Macintosh and Linux. I’m only using it for Windows and Ubuntu at the moment, but it works the same for both and it’s very efficient with a fast connection.

My goal is to clean my hard drive on my laptop back down to the bare bones size (just the Windows and Program Files folders taking up space).

I’ve let my hard drive pile up far too long, so I’m going to clean it and uninstall software I’m not using anymore. I have a bad habit of holding on to things and software that you never use anymore is just wasteful.

All of this just to get better boot up times and general performance improvements in Windows XP on my laptop, haha.

After running Registry Mechanic on my computer earlier it found over 1,500 problems, so I fixed them and optimized the registry and I can already tell some improvement. 😉

I’m hoping that disk cleanup and defragmenting after all of my files are transferred will give a noticeable boost.

Anyone have any other suggestions?
