Waste Management and the Recycle Bin – My Computer Told me To Empty
Kamini Kandica Abdool
Have you checked your recycling bin lately? Most people save the items in their bin just in case they make a mistake but, the mistake is to leave the thrash in the thrash. Leaving that there is actually doubling the amount of storage space that you use, reducing the speed of your computer…and…. and attracting more viruses.
Even with a large amount of hard drive space and a higher than required gigabyte hard drive, the amount of files in your “Recycle Bin” is important because the “Recycle Bin” is still a part of the system storage and the amount used is added to “Used Disk Space”. Emptying your recycling bin will reduce the amount of space used and also reduce the amount of space used and increase your drive storage space. This will in turn increase the response time for basic desktop functions.
Speed — everyone wants a computer that does everything faster. They want to connect faster, send emails faster, and work from home faster and even shut down faster. The memory shares processing time and look-up between the “Recycle Bin”, system files and working files. Your computer recycle bin affects processes, services, open and shared files. Emptying it helps reduce the amount of memory needed for processes, sharing and managing the computer and refreshes the computer’s memory leaving a sufficient amount for usage. Clean… clean… and clean again that “Recycle Bin”.
Dirty bins…Yuck!…. and viruses…. computer’s adversaries that secretly collaborates for itself and maneuvers throughout your computer carefree with no care for the work that is intended. Your “Recycle Bin”, is a big attraction for those critters. What a great word right, there’s another word, “parasitic”. At times that’s what trojans and worms are, “parasitic”. They prey on your files and folders and many times hide in usual places that they expect you not to visit, and viruses do too. As we mentioned before, one of those places is your recycling bin. Continuously emptying your “Recycle Bin”, saves you from these computer parasites called viruses, worms, and Trojans and reduces that amount of time that you need to spend on repairing damages. Whether they are good or bad, viruses can disrupt and change system files and settings that you may need so the better thing to do is dump the thrash, it’s the reason you put it there… to get rid of it.
Ready…. Go! System Cleanup…..
It’s like they do at home…. They clean up the trash. (Wink)
