It looks like a good way to keep everything organized. Thank you

By the way Joel, I didn't intentionally mean to jack your thread. I'm still figuring out what tools I need for my business

Gunslinger,

Could you please show us what you have in the rest of your folders?

P.S. What program do you use to show screen shots?


Thanks,
Czarman

I may post more shots later or a list. Take in mind this is only one of 4 "mobile kits" I have and they have different programs. Pretty much I can fix any software problem with 3-4 CDs and my mobile kit. The kit in the screen shots has 130 programs on it, just in the portables menue, there are another 85 or so that must be installed, plus I keep lots of documents as well.

Lets say I find a new problem I have not seen before and I have to google the answer. I'll save that info to a word doc or portable evernote so if I run into it again and forget how to fix it the info is right there and so are the tools to fix it.

As for the program I used for the screen shots. All I did was press the print screen button on my keyboard, open up a graphics program (Microsoft Digital Imaging suite) and paste the image then crop.

I have an Excel file with notes on problems and fixes. I don't reference it too often but when I do, I'm glad that I have it.

You can also use simple Microsoft Paint but with that you get the whole image.
