Protip: Put folders inside of folders.Also; kill any files you THINK you might not need. No second guessing. KILL THEM.
i would just reinstall os makes it easy and then start using the method cornflakes suggested
btw i was there
reload the OS
Good luck Cleaning it up! I have the same problem.
No pro tips, but I know where you're coming from. My desktop is usually filed with files, and i just wrote an article on my blog about itunes OCD XD
Use folders and organize it lol
Reinstalling would be my advice too. Then just try to take better care of your files.
Well, all your ideas ARE good, but I was asking more as to a brainstorming of how you keep your files in check, like what kind of categories do you divide into, where do you keep all the backup and stuff.also if you use software that makes things easier like using iTunes for music.
Reinstalling the OS is the best you could do
I like keeping only around 6 things on desktop, I have a folder called applications that I put all the shortcuts into and hotkey to control alt z, I hate clutter on the desktop.
Try TUNEUP !

I've been through that, The only real tip i can give you is that, there are a lot of things that SEEM necessary, but most of them really aren't... like porn and stuff, get ride of that sheez
