I am looking for a good sample template of a reliable folder structure to be used with My Documents in Windows.This needs to include different catagories based on criterias like
1. Work / Personal / Research
2. Graphics / Coding /
3. Photos / Music / Movies
5. Softwares (old version/ updates + patches )
6. Downloads for software evaluation
Scenario & Environment :
Basically, I am trying to get organized with my PC and Laptop, after which I need to implement a proper backup stratagy.I use a portable harddrive to move data between them. Temporary backups will be made to the portable HDD and permenant ones to DVD-R's.I work a lot on photography(importing,emailing,etc with Picassa), programming (VB, VBScripting, VBA etc.) , graphics (Photoshop,Bridge), network designing (documents,excels) and also on the personal front finance related documents like bank statements, tax proofs etc. Also I use Microsoft VMs to development & testing tasks , which I need to backup regularly (only the project folders in Visual Studio) with proper versioning.
Please do provide your suggestions and stratagies that can be easily implemented and maintained.
Thanks & regards,
