How to Work With Files and Folders

Computers have become a necessary part of our lives. It has become almost impossible to work in today’s competitive environment without the use of computers somewhere in your work. File refers to any item containing information. It may contain an image, data or music. There are huge varieties of different files. When you click a file you may encounter an image, music or any other text document. Generally, there are different images known as icons on the files which differentiate them from other class of files. Thus you can easily know which file belongs to music and which refers to images without opening that file.

Managing Files

In our everyday lives we notice that if we have huge amount of files on the desks it becomes very difficult to find a particular file. In general, it is difficult to sort the things which are in sixes and seven. Just in the same way it is very difficult to find and locate the files if they are present in the computer here and there. As we have cupboards and other containers to store the things in our homes and offices, similarly there are containers in the computers also. These electronic containers are known as folders. Folder is a container for files.

Giving Folder names accordingly

You can name each folder according to your choice. For instance you make a new folder with the name of “My Pop Music Collection” and transfer all your favorite pop music files in it. You are said to have created a folder for music files. You now know that if you want to hear a particular pop song you will go to the folder discussed above. In this way you can create folders for image files, music files and other text documents and spread sheets. You can also create a folder within a folder. If you create a folder within a folder you are said to have created a sub-folder. Sub-folders also play an important part in the organization of your files. They make approaching files very easier for you. Windows have a very good feature of libraries which make the organization of files and folders very easy.

Organizing different files

If you want to organize the text documents files then use document library. In document library you can easily arrange all your document files including spreadsheets and presentations. Pictures library helps you organize your digital pictures in the computer. Whenever you get any pictures from email, digital camera, other imaging device such as scanner then your picture gallery helps you organize and arrange the pictures in an effective and efficient way. Music library helps you arrange and organize all kinds of music files which you get them ripped from the compact disc or download them from the internet. Videos library helps you arrange and organize all the videos files and folders as you get them from your camcorders or download clips from the internet. In order to view these libraries go to start and then click the libraries that you want to open; document, pictures or music.

So all the methods and things discussed above mention how you can easily manage your data and prevent it from spreading here and there in your hard disk which makes it harder to achieve that data again.

Flickr Goes Wider, Gets Faster with Redesign

Flickr is an image and video hosting website, a web service suit, and online community. In addition to being website for user to share and embed their personal photographs, Flickr is used by bloggers to host images that they later embed in their online content. Flickr is a nice platform of recognition for amateur photographers as their work gets viewed by thousands of people.

Flicker was developed by a Vancouver based company and was launched in February 2004. Early versions of Flickr focussed on a multiuser chat room called Flickr live with real-time photo exchange capabilities.

Some of the key features of Flickr not initially present were tags, marking photos as favourites, and group photo pools. Now Flickr has partnership with Picnik and has many more features of interest. Picnik is online photo editing application and a reduced feature version of picnik is now the inbuilt photo editor of Flickr.

Few days back Flickr unveiled the new face if itself. Flickr has gone wide-Both photo pages and the sites home page have been stretched out to accommodate users with wider screens. Photos now get 640 pixels of space which earlier was 500 pixels. The extra space helps in filling up the page in a more pleasing manner when viewed on a wide screen display. The size change also ends up benefitting videos as many of them can be played in their original resolution.

The recent changes released by Flickr are not restricted only to the looks though. Flickers Head of the product Mathew Rothenberg said that this update includes faster loading pages which frees the servers for other tasks than just getting the pages loaded to the users screen. As per the statements given by Flicker, now Flickr page loads 50% faster than before.

Flickr has also enabled the keyboard support for browsing through images. This support has always been there on Flickr but was disabled. Now users can use the right –left arrow keys to move front and back.

Another feature added is customised background of Flickr. Earlier it was a prominent white background but users can put any image of their choice there. Customised desktop feature of Flickr is an option of a newly added mode on Flickr called as “Light Box”. Another new option available in Flickr is slideshow, which presents automatic transition of all the images and videos at the same time.

Now Flickr has its own world map and users can tag the photos with the actual location where the photos were shot.

The new look of Flickr currently is available as an option for the members till the time it is being tested – Once tested it will be released permanently for a new look and feel.

How to Restore an Image from a Flash Drive

Flash drives are fast becoming excellent modes of short-term data storage options for people who work on more than one computer at a time. Sometimes it is very important to carry a particular file to office from your PC or share some important data with friends. It is not always possible to send emails with attachments or burn CDs at the drop of one’s hat. This is where the Universal Serial Bus system of storage comes into use. The USB system of storage is used in a flash drive which makes it a more portable version of a floppy disk. It is also capable of storing larger volumes of data than the floppy disk.

However, a lot of people mistake the flash drive to be a permanent storage device. Using it over time can corrupt some or all of your files on it. Since it is being connected to more than one computer there are chances of picking up malware and virus infected filed which in turn can corrupt your PC as well.

Formatting the flash drive is a great way to prevent system corruption. However, in doing so many people end up losing important data since they have not backed up the stored information before hitting the “format” option.

Here is a step-by-step guide to recovering lost data from your USB drive:

  1. Find reliable file recovery software on the Internet that is compatible with your system and download and install it. Make sure that it is not poor quality software that may further corrupt your system.
  2. Attach your flash drive to your computer and run a device search after opening the recovery program. The program should pick up any USB device that is connected to your computer immediately.
  3. Use the “Complete file search” option on the right hand top side of your recovery program window to find any file that was lost or deleted from your flash drive.

There are separate options for searching image, doc and multimedia files on the tool bar. You can run these searches individually if you are looking for specific files to recover from your flash drive.

You may run a “Searching Active File Areas” on the default option in the menu of the recovery program. For specific searches you have to run the “Searching Archive file Areas” in the Advanced option available on the menu as well. Make sure you select the box which shows your flash drive for the software to run a search for recovering files on it.

You can customize the settings of data recovery and storage on the recover program according to you needs. The software can read drives that were archived and searched on it previously if you set it accordingly.

Make sure you select the files that have been recovered by the software and save them in the appropriate path on your computer. Don’t just leave it in the flash drive as there are chances of losing it again in future. Back up the files you use on your flash drive to be safe.
