it’s a mess, it’s a mess

Spent most of today and yesterday copying hundreds of thousands of electronic files from one pc to another. And even using fast copy utilities across a LAN, it is still frustratingly slow. One thing I would love to see is a kind of document management software that can compress, transfer and decompress large batches of files to speed up things like this.

I would also love a program that could scan a disk, eliminate all identical copies, then copy the remainder to one location. Can this be so hard to do? I have thousands of files and images since 1994 when I first went PC. And they’re a 100% total mess
