Struggling with file management? In this video, I reveal my simple file management system and share my top 5 file management tips that can help streamline your digital life!
I discuss the importance of balancing form (organization) and function (searchability) when it comes to managing your files.
I then provide an overview of my easy-to-use framework for file hierarchy, limiting folder levels to a maximum of five, with each level accommodating up to 99 folders.
I explain how I use Google Drive, and I also reveal the logic behind my file naming conventions, including two effective ways: date-based and alphabetical sorting.
