Comment Organize by year, then type, the specific item. (Score 1) 366

This has been working well for me for approximately 8 years or so:

The main benefit of organizing by year is that once the year is gone, you know that directory will never be written to again, so backing up becomes so easy, I actually very regularly do it. A little rsync, a few computers, and periodic DVD burning means I haven't lost any data in a long time.
