My approach to file management has evolved over the years, guided by both my own special form of OCD and by major improvements to cloud-based storage services.
And to be clear, I don’t necessarily think that my system is what you should do. I have my own peculiarities, including some need to be organized and to keep everything I’ve written. Your job may be very different, as may the types of files you want to keep. In fact, I fully expect that many people will try to make sense of my system and wonder what the heck is wrong with me.
