Its been 90+ days since I got my second laptop. Everything was going just great until the day I started running out of free space on the HDD. It was just a matter of time on the 80GB hard drive. And now it has. So, what follows next are the cleaning, dumping and burning sessions. This whole thing is something very new to me. Previously, I just used to reinstall Windows after taking backup of data. This time, however, I decided to try out the whole ‘clean and make-it-fresh’ approach. And I must admit, it’s very irritating. The biggest annoyance is getting those apps to work default just like they did on first install.
Segregating your files and deleting the useless stuff is quite a task in itself. Thinking twice before every folder is shift-deleted adds to the pain. You don’t want like to delete some important stuff by your own fingers due to a mistake. Had it been the ‘format and reinstall Windows method’, what’s lost will remain lost. Atleast, you don’t feel that bad when you recollect you didn’t backup some files coz the system formats it for you.
So, while I was doing all this stuff, I realized the magnitude of the junk created by these .torrent files. I was shocked to see a number as big as 326. We all are torrent junkies, agreed, but having them in such huge numbers on your desktop, default download folders and ‘precious-collection-folders amidst the important stuff’ was shocking. Actually, it’s very stupid. So, I think one needs to be a bit more disciplined before hitting ‘Download .torrent’ link. That would be note to self from my next download. Ultimately, it will lead to less clutter.
How many .torrents have ya got?
