I’m currently testing out J.D to backup my files and folders.
At the moment I use the DataCurator file tree from github.
So right now my current tree is like this, for the invoices I write to my customers:
Documents → Business → Business name → Invoices → Year → Month → Invoices files
And then I also have:
Documents → Business → Business name → Expenses → Company name → Billing file
It’s horrible deep and definitely not intuitive, so I might a little help here to fix that.
My idea was to go with something like this:
10-19 Finances 11 Banking 11.01 Statements - Person A 11.02 Statements - Person B 11.03 Statements - Business 12 Taxes 13 Invoices 14 Expenses 20-29 Documents 21 Personal 21.01 Personal A 21.02 Personal B 21.03 Personal C 30-39 Software 31 Applications 32 Drivers 32.01 CPU 32.02 GPU 32.03 Sound 33 Tools 34 Scripts 40-49 Media 41 Pictures 42 Videos 43 Logos 44 Stocks 50-59 Personal 51 Person A 52 Person B 53 Projects 60-69 Archives 61 Profiles 62 Backups
It’s not fully finished yet, but that’s the main idea so far.
Important for me personally are the documents for my business such as invoices, taxes, expenses and all that, then the backups of some personal files and documents from me and then from my girlfriend.
If the structure is set I will back them up to an in-house server, USB Stick and also to a cloud server which will be encrypted.
How do I go from here? For example how should I go with the bank statements, should I do
11.01.01 Year 2021 then
11.01.02 Year 2022 and so on?
Thank you very much!
