the girl who used to dance on fire and brimstone

How many times does it take me saying to IT "I can't save to the shared network drive because it's full" for them to actually getting round to doing anything about it? Gah! My boss is a fan of folders in file directories. She will create an overall folder and then within that have folders for every week. I guess it makes sense in a way but for crying out loud it just makes my life so much more difficult. There's this one thing I have to do on a weekly basis that's pretty time critical and yet the directory she wants me to save the stuff in is behind seven folders. It takes almost as long to find the damn thing as it does to actually do it. Now I usually save to my desktop and then transfer the files en masse. Fine, no problem.

Except, partly because of her love affair with folders, the directory I need to transfer them to is full. Chocablock. I've gone through the whole directory and cut down as much as possible, deleted a lot of files that were redundant, encouraged other people to do the same, but still the drive is full.

I told IT this last Thursday thinking that either they would increase the size of the directory or possibly even give our little mini-department it's Q drive all of it's own, but nope. I just tried to save my time sheet and there's no room for it. Gah! A time sheet, an excel doc with one tiny little change on it...
