Re: It's just like code/software bloat ....

... it simply is not cost effective to spend time routing thru all your data to save a few gigs.

I run a pretty well managed folder structure. That way even with the bloat I can usually find what I need quickly.

If I do have something come up that requires house cleaning then I throw a lot out, otherwise when I fill a drive, I simply back up the old stuff to the new drive.

Overclogged hard drives seem the norm these days - instead of clearing out all the junk and getting the computer working efficiently, without all the dross shoved on the hard drives.

Never truer is the old expression:

There is simply too much beauty in the world to photograph it all, but I'm trying.
