  • Jason's Tip: When naming your files and folders ditch the month-day-year date convention like 06-26-2014 (used primarily by U.S. listeners) or the day-month-year convention like 26-06-2014 (used by the majority of the countries around the world) and go with year-month-day like 2014-06-26. This format lends itself to neatly ordering your folders and files by magnitude so all your data is grouped first by year, then by month, then by day. This way when you sort your photo folders, for example, by name then a folder like "2010-06-12 Camping Expedition" will be placed neatly in the middle of the year (and month) it occured in your folder list.
