My machine is riddled with too many files! Who put all this junk in here?

So, it’s been a big day of trying to update all my machines. Normally this shouldn’t be a big deal, but it would seem I’ve been ignorning that little notification in the system tray that updates are available. I rarely reboot my machines so I need to plan for these upodates. Well, that ideology has bitten me in the ass. One of my machines need 1100MB worth of updates. No, that’s not a typo, 1GB worth of updates. Another machine needed over 600MB worth of updates and yet a third needed over 500MB. It makes you wonder just what in the hell is broken with Windows if it needs to update and replace that many files. How unstable is a new install of Windows anyway?

I’ve also come to the realization that I need to completely reorder ALL my drives. I have so much space and so many files that I’m losing things and have files spread all over the damn place. I needed to clean up a little space and combine similar files in the same place and saw that I have duplicates, triplicates and parts of a series in multiple places. And I have files such as books, songs and movies and I never knew I had. I had the same Active Directory training series across 3 drives. What the hell?

But in order to fix the problem I actually need more drives. I need to copy hundreds of gigs between drives in order to get similar files in the same place. This is going to be quite the mess.

One thing I need to do is go through and just delete the hell out of things. I found some old shows on one of my drives from 2010. I deleted 150GB worth of stuff I will never watch again. Who knew it was even there? It’s time to bring out the digital machete and go to town!
