I have been doing some of software “housekeeping” recently beyond the usual Windows updates. Its amazing how much cruft had accumulated even though I go through things regularly. I don’t trust the permanence of the internet so I like to keep a copy of software I use in case I can’t find it for download some time in the future. I always find some programs sitting on the hard drive I’m never going to use again. They may have been useful once, but now are just taking up space unnecessarily. Not unlike to going through stuff in the storage area in the basement.
