I've got a deeper structure than you. My top level is the following:
  • Adventures
  • Core Rules
  • Pyramid
  • Settings
  • Sub Series
  • Tech and Magic
The core rules folder has subfolders for Combat books, social books, and Power Ups


The Sub Series folder is for the "Campaign Toolkits" (DF, MH, Action and AtE)


Settings takes up a huge percentage of the total.


Tech and magic is probably my most used folder, and has some weird divisions, like the compendiums being in the "Setting Building" Folder, and "Spaceships" having its own folder.


I have a few places where I link especially helpful pyramid articles to folders, or even books (RPM is linked to the monster hunter folders)



In the same folder I also keep
  • Sheets
  • Reference Doc
  • Links
I mostly keep fan-made stuff in there. Reference doc is almost completely stuff I've made myself.

Beats putting your DVDs in alpha or chronological order.

My games folder includes a number of video games, but has its own Tabletop folder. Under that, there is GURPS (with Pyramid, 3e, and a few campaign specific subfolders), Fate, System Agnostic (at the moment, mostly Phil Reed kickstarter rewards), and Wargames (with Seekrieg and DBM the only thing abundant enough to warrant its own subfolders there).

77.3GB of gaming files. I'm a data packrat, and I've only recently broken myself of my Kickstarter, Kobold Press, and Raging Swan Press habits.

3.14 GB of files and stuff. I kinda like that number. A pi of RPGs. Incidentally, how the heck do you type the pi symbol?

On a Mac, option-p gives π

It's pretty ugly in this sans-serif font, but Times π or some other of the serif fonts might be better.

Heh, I have a dedicated 2TB SSD (about ½ full) for video games.

I've got all of 1.56 GB on my drive and that's including graphics files for tokens and handouts and probably some other games I was working on GURPSifying.

The whole games folder is 57GB, of which 7GB is in the tabletop folder. I'd likely have a lot more video games, but I'm happy to uninstall anything I'm not planning on playing any time soon.

About a third of the tabletop folder is GURPS, and about a third is Seekrieg (all those ship data sheets). My own files are mostly plain text, so they take up almost no space.

My GURPS folder is 3.58 GB large. There's also a larger folder of general RPG stuff.

To prevent wipeouts taking down my entire collection, I do have my RPG stuff backed up on Google Drive.

This was mostly a throwback to 2013 when DropBox and other cloud storage was becoming fashionable (and I did like being able to access my files on both desktop and handheld). Now, though, I'm hearing more and more that Google's policies towards user data are becoming user-unfriendly and I'm looking into DIY home drive backup systems of my own.
