My question is quite simple:
what are "old free-standing files" exactly? which is the difference w/ pendaflex?
I live in Europe and i can not figure out what does it mind?
David talks a lot about that in his book but there arenīt any pictures.
can you show me?

I think he means regular 'old' manila folders, coming in 1/3 cut and 1/5 cut. Before the days of Pendaflex, the file cabinets had a movable adjuster from the back that kept all the files upright.
I am using the 'one manila folder per Pendaflex' system, and so far it is working out well.

Thanx Pam, but Staples required a Canadian zip code :wink: , so here's a try with links that works from Sweden at least (or go to Staples.com, enter any five digit code as a zip, and browse for 'Office Supplies / File Folders & Filing / ').
Manila 1/3 cut folders:

Pendaflex type hanging folders:
