    If you have your files spread out all over your computer according to the program used to access them (i.e.: MS Word documents under the Word program directory and such) do this:

    For those on Windows (Mac users can do similar to this too) make a directory on your computer right under c:\ and name it "allwork". Guess what goes here. Yep, all of your work (create sub-directories under this). I've been doing this for years and it's a great efficiency tip because you know where everything is (it's under c:\allwork\...) and since allwork begins with the letter A this directory will be one of the first (if not the first) directory under c:\ - this means quick access.

    Works for me quite well.

    Not a good tip. Never save anything on your system drive (in most cases it's c:).

    Not a good tip? Why not? I've been doing this for years and never had a single issue with doing this. Explain your reasoning.

    It's better to keep the data in a separate partition other than the system drive/c: in case of any system crash or not to bloat the system drive for better performance.

    When I read the title I actually thought it's about time management of stuff like that :) though I agree with grazy, never keep anything on C: other than the OS and common installed programs

    Right. Been doing this for years based on similar recommendation.

    I've mapped My Documents to that partition also, to capture the defaulting documents from hitting the C: drive by accident.

    Also have a separate programs partition for performance reasons, though with SSDs it probably doesn't make much difference nowadays.
