I also use that year folder structure you show. I like the + sign hack on the name of the folder. I like to name folders with the name and lastname of clients. Often, one client might have several projects. (So one folder per project inside the client's folder) That way if a costumer calls me 3 years later i can find everything about him/her (no matter how many projects we did) in one single folder.
That's a very nice way of managing client projects! I will definitely incorporate that into my structure.
How do you find a project when you have been working for a few years with one client? I have, for example, one client since 2015 so I have a folder with their name in each of the folders for 2015, 2016...2019. But then it gets a bit difficult to remember when I did this or that project and I have to go back through each year to find it. Do you have any tips for that?
