I can answer from a photography POV - I keep all my RAWs in folders based firstly on subject and then on date. My folder structure looks something like this:

 

RAW Photos

--- Architecture

------ 2019 08 06

------ 2018 11 23

--- Heritage

------ 2019 03 02

------ 2019 01 23

--- Landscapes

------ 2019 05 28

------ 2018 12 26

 

This way I can easily navigate by subject and then date. The date format used means it is sorted correctly by Windows Explorer when sorted by Name. Sorting by DD/MM/YYYY would group all the firsts of the month together, then all the seconds, etc., making it a mess.

 

The RAWs are reviewed for sharpness and composition, with the poor ones being discarded.

 

Processed photos (the JPGs) are uploaded to the appropriate place (e.g. Flickr) and then discarded.

 

It's a neat and tidy system that I haven't had to change in years.
