rsprang,You wrote, What would be the advantage of a physical hard copy over a printout of a file stored on your computer? 1. Reliability. Paper is more reliable than a hard drive.2. Bandwidth. You can probably flip through a folder faster than a computer than open all those files.With that said, I'd add that there's nothing wrong with keeping only electronic copies. Just be sure to burn everything to CDs or DVDs frequently. Electronic copies may have the following advantages:1. Potential speed of access. (Searching or indexing)2. Slightly quicker distribution and reproduction.3. Less physical space and clutter. (Greater density.)Item #3 being the important thing, of course.- Joel
