Properly storing files has been an obsession and priority ever since the dawn of computing. Although great advances have been made in hypertextual searches, maintaining organized files continues to be fundamental to easily manage large amounts of documents.
Currently, most of us store our files locally, in the cloud and in servers connected to a single network (called NAS, from network-attached storage). So, saving and organizing our documents is perhaps more important, and at the same time, more complicated than before.
This claim is based on the evidence that misplacing a file can force us to re-do hours or even days of work. In fact, there is literature that supports this statement from a quantitative viewpoint: according to the widely cited whitepaper - The High Cost of Not Finding Information - by IDC, a global provider of market intelligence for the IT sector - a company with 1,000 workers loses almost 45,500 euros per month and 2.4 million per year just for not being able to find and retrieve already existing information.
In this post we will list the 10 best recommendations so that the documents in your company are organized impeccably.
