resurrecting to quote this because im seriously at a loss and too embarassed to ask anyone how to actually organize my file drive docs or actually get windows search to be able to search my docs.
the trick is to organise it as you go and build it in a way that makes sense to you. don't just throw things into a folder on the desktop and then drag it to D:\ when you move onto something else.
it's fine for it to be huge and sprawling as long as it's all sensibly named and obvious where things go. don't end up with D:\Stuff\Old\New Folder (2)\Backup - Copy\2009\Photos 2015\New Folder\

also don't be a hoarder. it's perfectly fine to delete car insurance documents from 2009

print them. print them yourself if you have to.
some years ago my uncle decided to scan 100+ years of photos, save them to the cheapest CD-Rs he could find in the supermarket, and then throw the originals away because two shoeboxes of photos "took up too much space" in the giant house he lives alone in.
luckily i made a copy of them after he was done, because he immediately lost half the CDs and the other half are already giving read errors.
