Topic: New external hard drive - help with how to file?
Hey guys, this might be a little bit anal of me, but I just got a new external hard drive and I'm copying all of my horror onto it. It's a lot of files, and I love to have things filed and foldered beautifully. I think it's a minor OCD thing.
What I ideally want is to be able to have all of my horror movies in one place, say a folder entitled 'Horror'. Then to have to same films in several directories i.e:
Horror>Sub-Genre>Giallo>Argento then have all of his films in there but also keep them in the main folder. I don't want to have 2 copies of each film, however. While watching films on my laptop through the hard drive I am planning to have shortcuts to the film in each sub-folder, but when I watch it through my TV it won't read shortcuts, so does anybody know of any way I can do this?
I know it's a long shot but I really really want to be able to do it like this, so if you know of a way it can be done I'd be very grateful
