So, I’ve been saving up to build a computer, and I’ve got nice up to date components picked out, and I think it’ll be a pretty big jump forward from my aging laptop. BUT, the thing that keeps bugging me is that the more I compose, record, and produce the more data I have to deal with. The rig I’ll be building won’t have any storage issues like my current one but I’d like to go into it with a plan or format in place to keep my stuff meticulously organized. Furthermore, the data I have on my current rig and collection of externals is all jumbled and I’d like to do something about that too before I retire the laptop.
I’ve got some ideas, but how do you guys keep your data organized? How do you deal with file name/location issues? Have any of you experimented with running simple programs to do some of the work for you? I saw a book about Python that mentioned this.
If it helps I plan on having 5 internal SSDs and an external archive that I’ll update regularly and keep locked in a fireproof chest.
Any advice is greatly appreciated. Nothing is worse than wanting to work and getting bogged down digging through file trees for that one version of that one song that might have that one performance you need.
