Can't find AskMe about organizing years worth of files
May 19, 2014 8:54 AM   Subscribe

Can anyone help me find the post I'm thinking of? I'm almost certain this was in AskMe sometime within the last 2-3 months. I thought I favorited it but it's not turning up when I search favorites. The question was something about how to organize this mess of files from years of various different computers, partial backups, etc. with a focus on avoiding redundancy. There were several good answers describing various programs to use, I think Evernote got trotted out too as it always does. Maybe WinDirStat too except when I use it as a search term I'm not finding what I want. Am I crazy? Did I imagine this thread?

This was the most comprehensive recent thread I remember, but doesn't mention either of those programs.
