As my research and fields if interest change over time I came to build a vast amount of research drafts, data files, different academic and non academic reports and publications. The same thing for talks, trainings, statements and institutions related paperworks.
My question: Is there any standard way of classifying academic files? folders structure, files and draft naming ?
If there is not, what are the general rules you apply when classifying your files. and do you use any software for this propose.
