I sort most of mine by design shop and seem to find them easier that way, then by designer. Plus all my purchased files go in a separate folder by designer name. If I get an occasional file - I have folder called 'components' and subfolder with frames, flowers, QPs, minis, etc. I have also started folders with holidays, seasons-fall, spring for the blog trains. When you get a lot of files, it still is a problem remembering where to go to get a file you want. One thing would really be helpful is to have designers name, kit, type file at least paper, frame etc. on each file.
