You have files and folders stored on your computer, but the problem is a computer shared by many people in the company.
You fear that your important files might be deleted in some way.
Is there a reliable and safe way to make sure they are not deleted somehow?
Here’s how to protect your folder files from being deleted.
You have several options for protecting your important Allen work files, and I have listed them below in order of preference:
1 – Buy a second computer for home use and save the computer you have to work. I don’t know what your budget is, but this is definitely the best way to go in my opinion.
2 – Store all your images and other work related files on an external USB hard drive
When you’re done with the day’s work, you can simply unplug the external storage device and lock it in a desk drawer or some other safe place.
3 – Store your files in the cloud using a service like Dropbox , Google Drive or JustCloud .
4 – Store your files in a password protected, hidden folder on your computer with a free utility called Hidden Folder . That way, your family members can’t access your work files to accidentally delete them.
Just be aware that if something happens to your hard drive, they will be wiped regardless – so always make a backup!
Any of the above methods will help keep your important files from being accidentally deleted, but I also recommend keeping a backup in addition to your files. Carbonite is a great solution for that.
I hope this helps you. Good luck!
