Solidworks file management.

I work for a smaller company any have major issues with file management.

Part of the problem is we have multiple files of the same parts and some have lost their links.

Currently I am looking for a basic starting point.

We have SLDPRT, SLDDRW, SLDASM FILES. Is it best to keep all these files together in one folder? Or star with an assembly folder and all the associated files with them?

Currently we have part folders which contain just SLDPRT, SLDDRW files.

We have a seperate folder with assembly drawings and part files that go into the assemblies.

The problem is if we modify a part in the part folder the part in the assembly folder does not get updated.

any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
