I also took some time to back up my files and freebies that I've won from other teachers and my stuff I've bought. I kept having awful thoughts that if my computer goes out on me, all my stuff is lost. And I couldn't download the stuff fast enough. I recommend backing up your stuff people! I think I need to do this once a week to stay on top of it.
My next step is to back up all the stuff I have made. Same reason as above; if I lose my computer all my stuff will be gone. I also organized some of my downloads and have several folders now and I'll be able to find everything much easier now!
Do you back up your stuff? Flash drive or external hard drive? I have a flash drive (2 actually) and they hold a lot! I got them for Christmas from the parents and I they're 8 GB by Sandisk.
Mine looks very similar to this.
They were on sale, but normally not too bad priced at regular price either. They are worth it anyway, backing up all the stuff!
It was really simple saving stuff to the flash drive. I just right clicked the item, picked "send to" and the flash drive was an option. So I clicked that and zoom! it was on the disk. Simple, quick, and will save me any headaches I might have had if I had lost all my stuff!
Little edit: Someone also reminded me that you could also use Cloud (if you have an Apple account) or Drop Box. Those are both great ideas too :) Here's a link to DropBox.
