Organising Your Files

What...

Organising your files ranges from naming them appropriately, to structuring them in a consistent manner, to effective version control. As the number of files you are responsible for increases over time, good organisation can prevent them from becoming unmanageable.

Adopting an attitude of organisation for your files can be beneficial in a number of ways:

  • It can save you and others time by making files easier to find.
