New Years Resolution: File Organization

For a new years resolution, I intend to organize my files, i.e. every file I have ever created on a computer since the dawn of time that I still have saved somewhere.


The big problem with this is redundancy. I have a lot of backups and drives which contain the same folders and files I have on my current laptop that I had on an old laptop… and then some. For one file, I could have a dozen copies of it depending on how many times it was backed up or moved somewhere else before syncing etc.

Anyone have a good suggestion for making this happen? Software, or approaches or anything? Offshoring perhaps?
