Whether or not you have a Mac, I'd suggest looking into a cloud-based sync solution if you think that would be useful for you. I'm using Dropbox for that effect, and with the automatic syncing of all changes across devices etc., I find that I don't have to deal with as much clutter as I can access my original file hierarchy on the go (e.g. project support and reference material).
