I empty my download folder and trash folder quite regularly, at least once a week. Apart from that, mostly when an issue appears.

When I remember Apr 15, 2017

Being reminded to do it by polls like this can be effective.

Moments when I tend to get round to it, when I have time but not the concentration powers to do translation, such as when waiting for a medical appointment or on a not very long train journey.

I move files into the right folders (you this that you save on desktop because you have no time) quite regularly (every 3/4 days) and the same happens for the files that need to be thrown away.

Maintenance, when a problem comes up
