I analyzed the folders out there and found one big old fat one that was left over from work and my old desktop. So I just moved it over to a USB drive and boom... my Google Drive was back down to a very reasonable size. Nice.
Until today. When I discovered that the doc with all my info in it - my Daddy List - the document I've been building for years for my brother after I die (and for my reference) was in that batch and, since it was a Google Doc, and I didn't export it or save it in a protected format, all the data was gonzo. (Yep, I also deleted the Google Drive trash in my big cleanup.)
So today I recreated. There are a couple of pieces of info that I can't find but nothing critical. And I remembered stuff that wasn't even in the original so it's better. And I copied it to several places and then I made a PDF of it and mailed it to me. So now we have redundancy of the backup. Ihopetojesus.
Now back to my day.
