Organising files on the computer



How do you organise your files? I've been discussing this elsewhere...

Do you put everything into My Documents? Are there folders and subfolders?

I'm just interested because people can get quite passionate about this kind of thing. :)

I had a techie tell me once, categorically, that all my files should be in My Documents - but it turned out that this was because it made *his* life easier and I'm still not convinced that my purpose in life is to ease the path of the IT department....

I keep all my documents in MD but have sub folders for different things like genealogy, recipes and so forth. This enables me to back up one file rather than many separate files. Just my way.waveysmiley

I don't use My Documents... I have a "Babs Office" folder on a different partition and have divided that into various sections.
