As the year comes to a close, most of us are putting together our New Year’s resolutions. This year make room for resolutions that apply to your digital life! It may not be as alluring as goals like travel to Fiji or work on getting a six-pack, but making your digital belongings a priority will help make the rest of your life a little bit easier.
So start 2014 off on the right foot and get your digital life in order with these five resolutions:
1. Ditch the Clutter
Is your digital library a digital disaster? This year promise to take your organization up a notch! Instead of stashing your digital belongings any which way, create specific folders and subfolders. Try labeling individual folders for each person in your family so you can group their important documents together in one place. When it comes to organizing photos and videos–make use of subfolders and consistently label them by year, month and then event so you can easily access, organize and sort them.
2. Exercise your Ability to Share
Share everything! Let family and friends revel in hilarious home videos and coworkers and business partners take advantage of your perfected work templates. Don’t forget to put all of Bitcasa’s sharing features to use, including the ability to post digital content directly to Facebook and Twitter right from Bitcasa mobile’s app.
3. Safeguard your Belongings
As we head into 2014, take time to protect the files and information that matter most. From health records to passports, scan hard copies of important information to create digital backups. Doing so now will lessen the stress when you need last-minute access to personal documents.
4. Slim Down Storage Space on your Devices
Reserve your computer’s desktop space and your device’s internal memory for a few key digital files. All the rest? Move them to Bitcasa! On Bitcasa they’re just as easy to access and even easier to share. Bonus points: By clearing up memory space on your computers, phones and tablets you’ll speed up the overall performance, making it a win-win situation!
5. Spend More Time with Friends & Family
Managing your digital library consumes time. Put the ‘Mirrored Folders’ function to use so you can spend less time glued in front of the computer screen worrying about backing up files, and more time doing things that matter most. With this function, any changes made to files on your computer will automatically and continuously sync to your Bitcasa Drive.
