How best to organise files and folders? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I would welcome ideas on how to best organise all of the files and folders on my Mac.

At the moment it is a bit of a mess between live project related 'stuff', reference stuff (mostly by project) and stuff sorted by category (music, ebooks etc.)

Searching the web has been less helpful than I thought it would be.

One suggestion is a structure of:
  • Personal
    • InBox (where anything personal gets dumped b4 sorting)
    • Projects
      • first project
      • second project
      • ...
  • Work
    • InBox (where anything work gets dumped b4 sorting, this has an alias to the personal inbox so it is actually one dumping ground.)
    • Projects
      • first project
      • second project
      • ...

I suspect that there is no 'perfect way' but would be interested in learning how others keep things under control.
