    More and more, I keep stuff on a pen drive and sync it to my home PC.

    Docs are prefixed with "01-", "02-" etc so they stay in the order i want.

    You should invest a bit of time to kick everything into some kind of order, then spend a few minutes each day sorting stuff to keep it that way. It takes seconds to make sure new content goes into the correct place.

    Having said that, I ignore it all, just keep it all in a big folder with sensible names like "document 1", "important stuff", "dont delete" etc... works a treat, I can never find anything!

    Generally a folder per area / item so have one caled E-mail for email related stuff, Data Protection, Notices, Bulletins, Meetings, LA ICT Group, etc... I have a projects one which has all my info RE projects ive done and planned and costed so its a folder per project and its got specs, quote request letters, emails etc inside them etc

    I am a bit messy within those though, but Windows 7 search is great and works a treat for me

    I don't really use my documents primary hard drive is an 80GB SSD so i don't like saving things to it, rather than redirecting my documents i've just got in to the habit of saving everything to my second drive (or at work i save it on to the network, or my second drive there depending on what it is)

    Best example I have seen is that you are have download/inbox folder which all your stuff goes into and then move from there into some organised system. Maybe GTD labels @home, @work,@edugeek etc etc.

    Key is that download folder you have a script that deletes every week so that you must move and store it otherwise you lose it.

    Sorry see that life hacker link discusses automated delete system.

    Also keeping your structure same on your my docs and your memory stick good so then can just copy across.
