What happened to my files?

The key to finding your files, is remembering where you put them. Sadly, our computers remember far better than their operators do!

Before you begin a project, spend a few minutes designing the file structure. Sort your potential files into categories: images, sound files, sound effects, raw files... whatever works for you. It usually helps to jot it down on paper and visually take a look at it. Then, create the final structure on your hard drive.

We recommend that you consider dividing up your files into large areas such as "shells", projects, and language groups. Then, under the broader category, begin with the pertinent ones for the current project.
