In the previous issue of OCLC Micro, I talked about some file naming conventions and other practices you can follow to help keep your files organized. As I pointed out, developing a method to help determine easily which file is the most current version and what its contents might be is no different whether you're using a hard disk or a diskette. But you can create a much bigger mess on a hard disk if you're not organized since there's so much more room to do it in Over 500 files can reside in the root directory on the hard disk vs. 112 on a diskette and, unless you create subdirectories, you only have a root directory.
