You need to be more specific of what you want to do/achieve. We all have different opinions but the main thing is to understand what you need to do before advising you.

For an example if you have a folder which contains mainly word document or correspondent letters to/from clients you probably best use client reference as the structure. If you have large client base, may be 26 folders from A to Z, and at sub-folder level their relevent client reference.

I basically want to be more organised with folders and files and not sure how to do this. I also want to make it easier for user to find information when they need it.

The main thing is to use meaning and unique names. What are the folders for? Internal staff or external clients? Are they correspondent letters/documents or working spreadsheets?
