I have a shamefully large porn collection which is difficult to organize. I have a filing system of sorts, but I make it up as I go along and it's more than a little inconsistent. I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem and if you've got any good suggestions. Thanks.

i just make main folders, then subfolders, etc. works perfectly well, and i probably have close to 350 gigs of files on my external.

I also use folder like vintage, bareback, or by studio like falcon, cadinot, HDK, I only have 45 gig on my system drive and another 60 gig on an external. But I have lots of dvds with 4 or 5 titles on each. I think I'm gonna burn it all to dvd eventually or get a tera byte drive.

i used to categorize it on dvds.
Oral
Anal
Jocks
cumshots
blowjobs
etc.
Videos I just categorize by twinks, jocks, or studio like Lex.

I burn all my stuff to disks...because its better to do that then have it take up hard drive storage.
I've got 2 internal 500gb drives I run, but one drive is for the operating system and program files, the other is a temporary/dump drive for DVD authoring, etc.

I have two other backups of my system offline in storage for just in case.
HD Storage is cheap but in todays day and age -somewhat unreliable.

I've had all too many customers think that their PC would infinitely store their data.
I'm here to tell ya... DVD is your safest bet.

yeah, i guess i should have expanded a bit more...

my system is basically this

Parent Folder
-white girls
-black girls
-Asian girls
-other girls
-Classic/Vintage scenes
-Fetish



then in each i have subfolders

-Big Tits
-Titfucking
-Blowjob
-handjob
-cumshot only
-POV

etc...and if i have the need, i subdivide it further, like for favorite performers like all the Gianna Michaels clips are stored under "White girl," - "Big Tits" in the "Gianna" subfolder - etc.

it works well

This is another reason I like Unix-like operating systems...symbolic links. :biggrin1:

My porn collection takes up more than 2TB of the 4.5TB array on my storage server.

I have scenes categorized by site, by performer, etc...so naturally some scenes would go in more than one category. In the Linux world, you just create a link to the file in each category where it belongs...it appears that you've put a new copy in each place, but in reality they're all just pointers to the one real copy of the file.

So a favorite scene with, say, Gianna Michaels might be in all these different directories (folders) on the filesystem:

/Brunettes
/Big Tits
/Naturals
/Creampies
/Brazzers

...but in raw storage terms, there's only one copy of the data actually taking up drive space.
