Hard drive organisation for Genealogists and Family Historians

How can I organise family history on my computer hard drive?

I have searched the web for various resources to help beginner genealogists and family historians to create a useful organisation system for the family history information they store on their computer hard drives.



The first resource I have found is a video on YouTube, 'Organize Your Hard Drive', from Family Tree Magazine (US), presented by Lisa Louise Cooke (of Genealogy Gems Podcast).




Kimberley Powell at About.com Genealogy has several articles about organisation including Organizing Digital Genealogy Files


Google's Picasa is excellent free software to help organise photographs and scanned files on your computer. 


What is your system for organising your family history files on your computer hard drive? I would really like to hear about it. At the moment I am working on re-organising my files with a system similar to that described in the Family Tree Magazine's YouTube video above.



Here are some blog posts from other genealogy bloggers regarding genealogy organisation:
What about organising family history information off the computer?

I hope some of these links are of use. If you know of any other resources to help beginners learn about hard drive organisation or organising family history information generally, please share your links and ideas in a comment. Thanks.
