I have my old set of files, with its hierarchy of folders.  I'd like to start over, while keeping the organization of the old set of files intact.  Rather than moving any old files I need into my new set, I thought I'd create junctions to the old folders.  Do you have any experience doing this and can offer advice?

 

Which would be better.  When I need a folder from the old set of files in the new set:

1) Create a junction in the new set, pointing to the old set.

OR

2) Move the folder to the new set, and create a junction in the old set, pointing to the new set.

 

I just don't want to find out I have a maintenance nightmare to deal with in the future.

Choose 1) because the old set of files, and its hierarchy, will be static.  The new set will be organized and reorganized, so the path of a junction pointing into it, will become erroneous.
