Still, just in case and for his peace of mind, all the information from your hard drive preferably somewhere to copy. For example, on another hard disk or burn it to CD or DVD. Very easy to copy, use flash drives. Folder structure.
So, we decided that to store information on each topic, it is desirable to have separate and drive. Next, we consider organize the folder structure on this logical drive. If you have recently started to collect information, we can first put the files in one folder, and as their savings to create new additional folders.

For a drive 'Web design' folder structure should be like this: Create a site; Mini-site, programming, domain, hosting, download site, treatment schedules, and so on. This is the first level of folders and it's just an example. With the accumulation of information in each folder at this level creates its own folder in the second level and so on. Levels can be quite a lot. The names of folders at all levels you set your own. In the process of building your structure, you'll create new folders, rename them, move files from one folder to another and so on.
