View Full Version : Looking for an efficient Directory Structure.

Does anybody have any samples of how their directory structure is set out?
I'm getting a new super computer next week and I want to have a good, stong and efficient directory set up correctly from the beginning. the current structure is gobble de gook and all over the place.
I will be making a partition on the hard drive.
I will be running Autocad and Solidworks.
This is currently what I have, but I'm looking for ways to improve it.

do you have projects that require both autocad and solidworks?
here we break it by project first then what it is second so the whole project is together

Ahh, so rather than making an autocad folder and solidworks folder. I should set the main folder structure out by using say, the contractors name or project. That way I wouldn't be confusing to look up projects. I would just need to look for the company/name that I done the work for.

Projectnumber includes the company initials, year, numerical sequence, so for this year first project is DG-09-001 Heat Exchanger. Drawings will be named DG09001A01, ...M01, ETC.
Then I have an archive with
and copy the projects for 2009 that have been issued for construction into that directory.

Ours is about the same as Rkents, except we also have a complete drive.
So to start
Then one the job is issued to construction it goes into another drive
and once that phase is complete it goes into
I would suggest something that you are comfortable with and makes sense, no need to change it to match someone elses (unless its forced by the company) that doesnt make sense, then you'll spend more time looking for things then necissary

Thanks for that chelsea. I'll give it a go, and make it as simple as possible.
Hopefully that should do me
