Tip #2: keep sync’ed documents (in My Documents folder) to a minimum (1) HQ | Arnhem Aula Meeting2 Time (in seconds) Volume of data
Tip #2: keep sync’ed documents to a minimum (2) HQ | Arnhem Aula Meeting3 Storage of personal working documents: don’t let this grow beyond 2 – 3 GB Storage of shared departmental documents Move personal inactive documents that you wish to keep to a separate folder that’s not sync’ed From time to time, review you’re My Documents folder: throw away what you don’t need anymore ! store elsewhere what you don’t need now but wish to keep.
Tip #3: Use “work offline” when travelling HQ | Arnhem Aula Meeting4 To switch offline working on: Start / All Programs / Work Offline To force synchronization: Right-click the computer icon in the taskbar Choose “Synchronize”
Tip #4: Minimize items in startup folder HQ | Arnhem Aula Meeting5 May seem convenient to put in for instance Outlook, so it automatically starts Result can be that overall startup is slower, when your computer runs out of working memory and starts “swapping” to cope with all concurrent tasks Swapping causes the computer to use its disk for working memory, which is considerably slower
Tip #5: Remove unneeded network printers HQ | Arnhem Aula Meeting6 Certain tasks (e.g. Opening / Saving a document) cause Windows to recheck all printers, causing long timeouts for non-existing ones
Tip #6: Manage the size of your inbox and mailfolders HQ | Arnhem Aula Meeting7 Keep the overall size of your mailbox below 300 MB: when it gets over 300 MB, items younger than 90 days will get archived as well ! Keep the number of items in folders below 3000 items The best method to reduce the mailbox size is to delete messages you don’t need anymore. In particular delete: alerts and notifications, newsletters you’ve read, mail from suppliers
Tip #7: compress your offline mailstore from time to time HQ | Arnhem Aula Meeting8
Tip #8: minimize the number of open mailboxes and calendars in Outlook HQ | Arnhem Aula Meeting9 This is on by default. Especially for secretaries managing many calendars it’s recommended to turn it off to prevent sync errors and performance issues.
Tip #9: rebuild the Windows desktop search index HQ | Arnhem Aula Meeting10
Tip #10: run the disk cleanup wizard from time to time HQ | Arnhem Aula Meeting11 Please do not select “Offline Files”: This is the offline storage of your My Documents folder !
