Keeping files in specific folders is a good way to organize your data in order. As an unexpected data loss disaster occurs for one reason or another now and then, you may lose data from a folder or even lose the whole folder due to mistaken deletion, hard drive formatting, virus attack, recycle bin emptying, or other causes. Besides, if the lost files or folders are too large, it might be a permanent loss, because the deletion will not go through the recycle bin at this circumstance.
