Why you want to use Metadata and not Folders...

Chris Poteet made a great video demonstration about using Metadata to find your files, not using the (20y ago) folder technology.

This video demonstrates two extremes, and he also explains the technological improvements that allow you to walk the line between then. It is still important to note, however, that folders still fall short as a classification method. SharePoint provides a great opportunity to rethink how information should and could be classified to maximize your organization’s information and assisting others in finding it.
