Data CDs

I don't have a floppy drive so I save data from my computer on CDs. I don't like to write on the CDs because I rewrite them sometimes. I came up with a numbering system - I assign each CD a number. The numbers are listed in a database on my computer. I type in the files that are on each CD. This way I can look up files by name and find which numbered CD they're saved on. It might seem tedious, but looking up a file in a database is so much faster than searching through a pile of disks and reading each one!
