Seems to be a tad slow on this board!

I'm wondering how some of you folks organize your files on the computer.

Had a recent Hard Drive a new one and NOW have backup....which means that yes, I did lose lots of emails that had genealogy info in them, as well as maybe 30 documents. I can pretty much find the info again from the documents loss.

But now that my computer is humming again, I want to really get things in order...Was using Surname as a file folder.....then got to wondering if I should put Counties under a file folder...Wills.......Census reports......Marriages.....Deaths......each of those under a separate folder....or put these "categories" under my Surname folders...(which seems to me to be the best way to go).

Would love to hear how YOU do it!!

Oh...I am on an iMac, Snow Leopard, and have Reunion 8, which I have not been using for years....probably need to download the latest version, tho Reunion 8 was confusing enough for me! ;-)
