Hi A .. there are some good tips in this thread and thats appreciated, but I definitely have to agree with the premise of this thread - not surprised at all that its over 6 pages long and growing
In general I think Ableton has missed the plot on file management, its all way too cumbersome and its constantly throwing up problems for us to solve, rather than manage anything better
Big for instance (and only one of many):
I dont use Ableton's Library. My organizational system was in place before Live 5 and I dont want to change it. My projects and waveforms total over 80+ GB worth of stuff, and its pretty detailed how I have it broken down.
Ive tried (once) to move the entire structure under yours and adapt, but it didnt work out, so I dropped the idea. And Im sure Im far from alone on this, people have existing organizational schemes ... takes a long time to develop and hours and hours sorting things
Now any features that utilize the Ableton Library structure in any way are not available to me or anyone else who has a large existing library structure that they cant adapt.
