When organizing digital files (text, pictures, videos, music, etc.), you use the same method as filing paper documents. With well labeled folders, you can create valuable storage structures that are useful when it comes to searching for documents later. However, the more folders there are, the more shelves you need – the archive could even spill over into different rooms in a company, for example. In the case of digital documents, the folders become file folders, shelves become directories, and the archive rooms become storage media like hard disks (internal, external), USB sticks, SD cards, CDs, or cloud servers.
