Ultimate Guide To Organizing Digital Files: Part 2 - Dropbox & Google Drive

Monday, March 21, 2016


 Hello Friends!

Welcome to part 2 of my series on organizing your digital files! With a plethora of amazing resources available via the interwebs, it's not only possible but highly likely you've amassed hundreds of digital files. If you're not careful you'll soon be faced with a disorganized mess of files and these potential time-saving resources become a nightmare to sort through. Soon you find yourself spending half of your planning time just trying to find that *perfect* resource you know you downloaded.

Last week we talked about organizing your files in folders. Of course you can store these files on your computer, but today we're going to explore some other options that offer features and flexibility not available on your computer.


Something a little different than I planned...

As I started writing my first draft for this post I realized just how much information there is to share and how many screen shots I would need to take to show everything. It was quickly going to get rather cumbersome and confusing, so I decided to make a video tutorial instead! The video is about 30 minutes and loaded with information and how-tos to get you started - it's like a free mini webinar!

Click here to download a PDF of the slides I used in the video for quick reference and main points, but for the how-tos and tutorials I suggest you watch the video below. (Click here to watch on Youtube)

For your convenience, here are time markers for the various sections:

Introduction - from beginning
Hard-drive vs. cloud storage - 1:10
Dropbox - 5:10
Google Drive - 17:00
Honorable mentions - 24:20

Do you have a favorite place to store your files? Do you already use one of these services or maybe even one I didn't mention here? Share in the comments and join the conversation!
