information is abundant in the legal sector and with constant deadlines, you
need to be on top of all that data by easily being able to retrieve that information
fast. Unfortunately, even with a great digital filing system, it is not an
easy task to remember exactly where all those digital documents are kept.
You may well have many different drives and folders to navigate, and sometimes
there's just too much data to be able to locate the needed file efficiently.
In this scenario you need a program that quickly searches your entire drive
(or several drives) with a click of a button for the file you need. Sure,
the standard Windows Search function locates files, however it lacks the ability
to allow the user to specify certain attributes like the creation date of a
file and a path filter. This kind of filtering is crucial in speeding the process
of locating the document you are after. In addition, the standard Windows
Search function does not allow you to search several drives at the same time,
which proves to be inconvenient and an inefficient use of your time. Even if
the search filters and searching one drive at a time using Windows Search function
are adequate for you, waiting for the results to appear while the "dog" runs
aimlessly and endlessly is simply agonizing.
which is part of 2BrightSparks' OnClick Utilities suite of programs, allows
you to filter down your search based on filename, file extension, folder
path, size, creation and modification date, and even a keyword or string of
text within the sought-after document. Want to find duplicate files to make
space on your external hard drive? You can do that too with FindOnClick.
Emailing legal contracts to your clients for verification is sometimes a painstaking
process as the document size grows and grows as more modifications are made.
a wonderful piece of software, also part of the OnClick Utilities suite, that
allows you to create "patches" of
a particular file. Simply put, a patch is a file that contains all the modifications
of the original file. That way, you'll be emailing a very small-sized file
compared to having to email an entire file thus saving a lot of time and effort
of having to compress the file, and at the same time you'll decrease server
and bandwidth demands.
What about keeping all your digital information in order? That is a chore in
itself! Have WE got a solution for that too! InfoHesive is a versatile and
powerful piece of software that will allow you to keep your clients' contact
information organized, store your templates for legal documents for easy retrieval,
create orientation packages that contain everything that your apprentices need
to know during their apprenticeship term, and just about anything else you
can think of to do with your digital information. If you find something that
InfoHesive isn't capable of, let us know! We'd love to hear from you and see
how we can add that feature into this still-improving program.
Keeping your digital information safe is important, even when you discard it.
Simply deleting your files by hitting the Delete button on your keyboard and
emptying the Trash folder does not guarantee that unwanted eyes won't view
them. DeleteOnClick securely
deletes files with military grade deletion is the safe alternative. In addition
to deleting files forever, it renames
the filename to a completely random series of characters that acts as a second
level of security.
You may evaluate all the above programs obligation-free before you purchase
them, so don't wait any longer!
We're always being told to exercise
and lose weight to stay healthy (something I'm sure most of us once again
decided to add to our New Year's resolutions list), but increasingly these
days we're also told to exercise our brains. In my job that's not really
a problem as I spend most of my day sat in front of a computer manipulating
hundreds of thousands of lines of code to add new features and fix bugs.
Add to that answering technical support questions and forum posts, and reading
for an hour or two every day (usually before sleeping), and I'd say my brain
gets enough of a regular work-out (sometimes too much!).
To add to this brain exercise regime, I also like to do Sudoku puzzles (usually
while waiting for the computer to do something). If you've never tried Sudoku,
it's easy to learn, and I'd highly recommend it. There are plenty of free
Sudoku games and tutorials available online (just Google for free Sudoku
for a list). If you want to maintain your peak you'll need to exercise both
your body and your mind, and Sudoku may just help.

Do you create profiles for family members or colleagues? Do you have
profiles for others to download from your website or blog? Often
it's not enough just give them the exported profile (the SPS file)
usually need to provide them with details on what they may need or
want to change in the profiles settings. SyncBackSE/Pro V5 lets you
include notes in a profile (see the Notes profile settings page),
and you can optionally have those notes displayed to the user when
import the profile (just enable the option "Show
these notes when the profile is imported").
Do you install and configure SyncBackPro to run on your clients computers?
Are you responsible for making sure those backup profiles run correctly?
Both SyncBackSE and SyncBackPro have the ability to send emails after
a profile has run. This way you can make sure all your clients backup
profiles are running without a hitch. But did you know you can also
have SyncBackPro send you an SMS if a profile fails? And just in
case that wasn't enough you can also have SyncBackPro post a Twitter
when a profile is run. For more information see the script files
SendResultViaSMS. vbs and SendResultViaTwitter. vbs that are installed
along with SyncBackPro
(note that scripting is a feature only available in SyncBackPro and
is not available for SyncBackSE).
