Hi guys we are about to reorganize our vault and I'd like to see what yall are using, to not reinvent any wheels or go down a bad path.

 

Currently we're job based, with Solidworks files and other design data scattered over thousands of job folders.  Messy now that we are getting a good bit of reorders.

 

We're looking to move all our design data into one area of the vault, but divided on what folder structure (if any) is best.

 

1.  D:\Vault\Product design\<category>\<product>\(~10 subfolders - Solidworks, autocad, math, specification, etc)

 

2.  D:\Vault\Product design\<category>\<product>\   --no subfolders, all 50~1000 files in single folder--

 

3.  D:\Vault\Product design\<product>\(~10 subfolders - Solidworks, autocad, math, specification, etc)

 

4.  D:\Vault\Product design\<product>\   --no subfolders, all 50~1000 files in single folder--

 

5. ?

 

Any opinions or insights very welcome! Thanks!
