# Organization of folders
Organizing files in directories is a key task to stay organized and to make sure that everyone is
able to find back the files easily.
A key rule is to name the folders with straightforward but explicit names, and to include the decision tree
of where to put a given file inside the folder structure. In fact, the directory tree should in some sense
reflect the decision tree.
There are a few suggestions to organize a folder structure:
### Suggestion 1
Only have a few folders per level (i.e. 5-6 folders per level). That way, the decision of where to include a file is straightforward.
### Suggestion 2
The more general the upper levels and the more precise the lower levels are, the easier it is for someone to decide where to include a respective file. The idea is to mirror a real tree.
### Suggestion 3
Depending on the setup of the research group, it might be useful to structure the group's overall mission into separate programs, sub-missions, or areas of expertise.
### Suggestion 4
Archived folders (or frozen folders) can be named with an `_` (underscore) preceding the actual name of the folder.
### Example
An example for a folder of research group at LCSB:
```
