I came from a windows background some four years ago and set up my first Mac with a large folder structure to manage my files. As time has gone on I have continued to add files and folders so that today I find myself with a complex structure which means I'm unlikely to be consistent when assigning a file to a particular folder. I have been looking at the coloured tags and wonder whether I can simplify my structures to simply; photos; documents etc. and then tag everything with one or more tags to facilitate future searches. I wonder what other users do? Is it reasonable to simplify everything as above? What are the advantages and disadvantages? If I then store my files on iCloud or in Dropbox, will the tags still function? Any thoughts welcomed.
