True it is not as convenient to locate things in a hardcopy form. It takes take a little longer to relocate something from my filing cabinets than it does from some of nice organizational programs. I am a bit OCD about filing. I have an entire room dedicated to photos and they are all in order of date. Old school but I had a bad experience once so after that I just felt more comfortable maintaining more than one form of backup. I have also donated items so if I absolutely have to I can get a copy from places where I have donated. I always encourage people to donate scans and I have of my own items and support museums, historical societies, etc. They usually start a file there as well, once you have donated an item. They figure why repeat the work to relocate something so they keep a file.
