I never suggested "desktop" as a permanent file destinationHow you organize your User space c:/users/login/* is entirely up to you. My wife dumps files and downloads on her desktop and she still has issues sometimes locating files.
I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around the idea whereby my description of sorting files into categories and shuttling them to folders on a storage drive isn't "hierarchical" filing system. Is it because I'm .having trouble with my syntax or literacy in my old age? Or is it because I simply didn't use the fancy term, "hierarchical"?After years of programming, I've gone to a hierarchical structure which makes my files easy to find in the Explorer or Search.
Perhaps not, but there certainly is, "a wrong way". That would be using the file spaces provided by Windows on C:/ for permanent storage.There's just no right way to do this.
Then perhaps you might relate to "Outline" where each subdir defines a unique level of detailI simply didn't use the fancy term, "hierarchical"?
There's nothing inherently wrong with those classification -- but they apparently violate some philosophy for you.file spaces provided by Windows on C:/ for permanent storage
No, there's nothing inherently wrong with those classification, save for the fact they're located on the C:/ (operating system drive)EDIT (By captaincranky): Or Maybe Stuff > Sub Stuff >Sub Sub Stuff
