    I'm a neat freak, and I like to keep track of files pertaining to certain subjects, otherwise I get lost often. I am looking for a structure to organize my files. Maybe you guys can share your file structure/organization with me?



    EDIT:
    Here is my structure... lol it's everywhere. I don't really do this kind of stuff, so i'm terrible:

    Friends (strictly for business modeling purposes)
    === friend name
    ==== folders and documents here
    Database
    === clients
    ====== client name
    ======== files and folders here
    === prospects & leads
    ====== year
    ========= numbered month
    =========== files and data on leads I found that month
    Goals & Milestones
    = documents and stuff
    Notes
    = just some files here, like when I have an idea or a thought or advice from people I come across
    Raw Files
    === logo
    ====== files for logo
    === business card
    ====== files for card
    Website
    === img
    ====== img files
    === other files here

    Usually I create master folder, such as clients, where there are subfolders of clients names, where there are categories of work to be done, such as SEO, video, theme and so on. I mean, if you are a neat freak, you'll figure it out. :)

    How are you keeping track of where you put your brochures, website template & content — and other documents — though?

    And make sure you have external hard drive to save all the copies of your folder

    The chaos one is very useful, and I'm going to use it too, but I also want to keep track of my business files as well — not just my clients and their other important info. Ya know? I'm trying to keep track of my website's files, my business insurances, meetings, etc.... Just not sure where to start =/.
