Up One Level



Routine care of a computer system to ensure that it is kept running in the most efficient manner. Housekeeping will normally include: routines to delete items such as temporary files (which are no longer required), identify and remove duplicates of files, check the integrity of the disk records and the magnetic coatings on the disk surfaces, and generally tidy up the filing system.

Housekeeping should not be restricted to the main system. It is just as useful for desktop machines and laptops - considering the circumstances under which they are used!
