after cleaning up a bunch of old drives, yeah. i use icloud for goofy images etc. since it's simple enough on windows, but any real files live on a network drive that i backblaze and can pull from any os locally

it was handy when i was condensing and sorting old file because i deleted something, realized it was meaningful, and pulled the backup

for photos there is only one way that works: dir with year as name and subdirs with year-month-day containing photos. prune early and often because doing it later is more painful, especially with family pictures. i despise lightroom or bridge or whatever adobe poo poo trying to be smarter than a hierarchical fs.

having just done a preliminary tidying of several old drives with files and photos from the last 25 years these absolutely were

the best were when i had pulled files with date naming, the worst were ones where the creation metadata was wrong and exif data didn't exist because the digital camera had a crappy clock and would reset to the initial epoch date. my memory was off by a few years and i was lucky to find duplicates with older and more accurate dates to improve sorting

wiztree is the best windows disk analysis tool

it's real nice and i keep forgetting to switch out from windirstat. they're very similar but wiztree is way quicker

there's also grandperspective for macs

thanks, i've been using windirstat for years but it sounds like wiztree is 46 times faster

it's so fast and i don't know why i reverted on my newer machine
