Trying to refine how our family organizes their recorded pictures and videos. Data is coming in from all sorts of places. So many files have duplicates and duplicate names (I.E. IMG_1001). Data is being migrated to a ZFS dataset and organized with DigiKam. Lots of tagging and adding descriptions happening. Can anyone think of any downsides to renaming the files according to their hash? The end goal is to have many directories, named after tags, full of hard linked media. Thoughts?


Not a clue

Everything here sits in a folder, by year

Videos go in sister folders

We have duplicates as I pull out "holidays" or "birthdays" etc and live with the duplicates

Currently around 50gb images/videos
