Avoid repetition and redundancy
Rule 2: Avoid unnecessary repetition and redundancy in file names and file paths.
Avoid redundancy in file names and file paths. Unnecessary repetition increases the length of file names and file paths, which is incompatible with rule 1.
- Correct file name
- Incorrect file name
- In the first example, the folder is called ‘Court’ so you don’t need to include the word ‘Court’ in the file name.
- In the second example, the folder is called ‘Procedures’ so it is not necessary to include the word ‘Procedures’ in the file name.
