ZenOK Offer Free Online Backup with 21GB storage


ZenOK  was founded by Ron Hessing in 2005 on the belief that data is the most valurable asset people and businesses own today. ZenOK have recently increased their free back up from 2GB to 21GB of storage.

“Online Backup for everyone! It is free and remains free, forever!”

ZenOK is an experiment in a new kind of Online Backup built on the idea that you should never have to lose your documents, spreadsheets and photos (again), and you should always be able to access the file you want.

I know the feeling of losing important data –  it is not good!  I had a damaged hard drive which took a hell of a lot of work to retrieve some documents and files that I hadn’t backed up. I eventually used Ubuntu live CD to recover the lost data – it worked but it was lucky.  Now I am much more conscious of backing things up.  I don’t put all of my eggs in one basket either, just incase that fails.  So these online backup systems are of great use, especially when they offer so much space.  I think this is the largest free online storage available, most of the time its 5gb’s or you have to pay.  – Correct me if I am wrong.

ZenOK claim to already have 10’000 active users on their system, and I’ve seen no complaints about this service – which is always a good indication.

40.000 photos, 25.000 songs, 150.000 docs.

How to easily rename all of the files in one folder in Windows.

Its like this, you took 100 photo’s on your smartphone while you are at the event last week and you want to put them on flickr, photobucket , ImageShack@, Picasa or where ever it is you put your photographs

Time is of the essence, you’ve named the photos with people you know in, and now you are bored and left with 98 un-named photos. 🙂    If you put them on your image hosting website entitled IMG0234.JPG etc no one will ever be able to find them in a search (Bad SEO) and it just looks awful. So with these 4 easy steps you can name them all “Nokia-Event-Oct11” for example.  Also you may just want to do this to tidy up your photos or files on your computer.

Here is how to do it.

1) Open the folder or directory holding the files (photos) you are wishing to rename.

2) Highlight the files you want to rename –

For all of the files – Click CTRL A
For “most” of them hold down the shift button click and drag until all items are highlighted
For just a selected few – press CTRL and click the files that you want to rename.

 

 

3) Press F2 on the keyboard and it allows you to rename one file

4) Press enter and hey presto – like magic, they are all named correctly !

Not fantastic renaming on my part, but just an example.

Hope this helps.
