Welcome to Friday’s Random Thought.
I work in IT and I have seen many strange things over the years.
I’ve see computers live a dual life as the classroom computer/Ant Farm. I’ve see systems that are so impacted with dirt that you litterally have to use a trowel to clean them out. I’ve seen the desktop screen for user’s soo cluttered with icons that you actually can’t see the wallpaper anymore.
The strangest thing I have seen and still don’t understand is the use of any of the ‘delayed deletion’ icons in Windows being used for filing purposes.
Lately, I have seen more and more people use the Windows Recycle Bin as a place to store files. I am also seeing people use the Trash in Outlook to again, file away email.
Using these two locations is not a bad thing if you are using them to delete files and/or emails.
Why are people using these locations to store IMPORTANT information?
The only reason I can think of is that people are hiding things that they want to delete quickly for some reason. It is the only logical reason I can think of.
I mean, you don’t store food in the garbage can at home, why would you put your files in the trash.
Yup, the more I observe about human behavior, the more I get confused.
Happy Friday Everyone!
