Sure. I have done in my life about 254 projects. Less sure. But at the beginning i don't use a code. The last one is 254.14
A folder like 254.14 has some folders inside and files.
The .14 correspond to the year, and the resto to a sequencially number.
I begin years ago in the 125 number.
But before that number I usually uses a descriptive name in the folder like : Activ Properties
Some of the old projects are in the folder CUSTOMERS inside the PROJECTS Folder with the numbered works.
I usually do only one project by customer, but i have one i made many.
So this one have a special folder : JOVI and some projects inside this folder.
What I need is obtain a list of the folders by its creation data.
I have move along the years one folders to one pc to another so I observed the modification date is not the creation date and now don't remember how to see the creation date of the work.
Once I have the folders in order i can create shortcuts to renumbered the old ones from 125 to the first. Probable i will not reach the number 1.
