Traditional Filing Cabinet
• Folders are labeled by stickers according to their content and categorized alphabetically in cabinets. Such a filing system is typically cumbersome and difficult to update.
• As data quantity increases, so does the effort required to sort and find information. A misplaced folder would be difficult to find.
• Alphabetically ordered folders may be easy targets of theft or tampering.
• In Asian languages that are based on characters instead of alphabets, folders cannot be filed alphabetically using traditional cabinet filing systems.
