  • Computer use is split betweenApplications vs ContentSystem vs DataI’m talking about the latterTo me, this is the important stuffApplications can be reinstalled. Data needs to be re-created
  • Dropbox is software that syncs your files online and across your computers. Put your files into your Dropbox on one computer, and they'll be instantly available on any of your other computers that also have Dropbox installed (Windows, Mac, and Linux too!). Because copies of your files are stored on Dropbox's secure servers, you can also access them from any computer or mobile device using the Dropbox website.

    • 1. DATA MANAGEMENT: WHERE’D MY FILES GO?Presented by Miles - January 2013
    • 2. Agenda What do I mean Data Mgmt? 4 Points 1. Develop consistent naming system 2. Use Logic Tests to decide location 3. Search tips + folder views 4. Synchronizing and archiving Discussion
    • 3. What do I mean Data Management?
    • 4. System+Apps vs Data  Folders  Files
    • 5. Point 1: Develop a Consistent Naming System

Is this associated with a department?5. Will you need to work on this from multiple locations and computers?6. Does this file need to remain confidential?
    • 17. Logic Tests: Will this file need to be shared?If Yes: consider a shared network drive or in cloud storageIf No: Local drive or removable storage
    • 18. Logic Tests: Is this a final version or draft?If Final: consider converting to PDF and store on a shared network drive or in cloud storageIf Draft: Local drive or removable storage
    • 19. Logic Tests: Is this a templateIf Template: Consider the Intranet, a shared network drive or in cloud storageIf Draft: Local drive or removable storage
