Because the file, if it is assumed sheets of paper, then some of the pieces of receipts, diary sheets and another sheet if not set will be scattered in the closet or your desk. So so easy you get a good file included in the folder , so if you find a file receipts only need to take the receipts folder, no need to interfere with any other folder. Similarly, the windows will manage the system files, application files and data files into specific locations on the hard drive making it easier for windows to find the files needed.
