Digital Decluttering & Time Management

I don't do 'New Years Resolutions', choosing rather to change things in small steps throughout the year. The Christmas 'holidays' however, can give a chance to do a bit of extra sorting ... and with my house near-enough in 'maintenance' phase, I turned my attention to my digital spaces, including a  new 2TB hard-drive which rescued 90% of the data from my previous hard drive (which sounded distinctly unhealthy), and allowed reclassification and removal of duplicates, so annual photo…
