Organizing Files

I have a lot of personal computer files and related content spread across multiple locations.

  • email messages
  • pictures
  • final movies
  • unedited family videos
  • project files
  • music
  • scratch notes
  • blog entries
  • wiki entries
  • old sites (fire bellied toad world, 3D Clarity)
  • kee passs file(s)

Some stuff I want backed up forever.
Some stuff I want to share with only friends and family, while some stuff can be shared with the world.

Other family members also have files.
