    I just use [URL="http://www.dafont.com/"]http://www.dafont.com/[/URL]. There you can find nearly every font by various criteria.
    Instead of organizing it on your PC, just have your collection there and look up your font on that web site... afterwards just look up the font by its name on your PC.

    Oh...

    Oh man you spoke my mind ..
    I have the same problem ... The only solution i found its to uninstall all font The install the only fonts that i really want .. and preview the fonts before i install it. using some previewing software.

    I hope that my font manager sorts them out correctly for me, does that count?

    First by Serif, Sans Serif, Display, Script, Blackletter, etc.
    Then I stick each font Family in its own folder with a foundry prefix (for example, [FontFont] Quadraat).

    That way I can cross search by foundry instead of type style if I want.
    Original? Nope! But it keeps me fairly organized.

    I just wonder if those thousands of folders are good for my hard drive—because it has virtually killed my USB flash drive.

    I use a program to sort the newly downloaded fonts:

    /Foundry
    /OTF
    /TTF

    In this way I can look up the foundry and then use my first choice of font tpye which is the advanced OTF Format.

    And before you ask the font sorting program does a great job is called FontOrg

    Visual Book

    Ha. Not a best answer but relation:

    I collect pictures from myfonts and other, and keep visual book.

    I look at picture and then choose font in Font Explorer.

    cheers!!

    I have a somewhat mix approach

    The major foundries (with 100+ no of fonts) have their own folder
    There is a different folder for font families (with sub folder for each font family)
    I save views of the fonts (from the web - jpeg/png/gif whatever is available) in a different folder so that I can see fonts in action when I want something new
    I have a Misc folder
    I have a free fonts from web folder

    I backup every 6 months

    I've absolutely fallen in-love with Suitcase Fusion. Having the ability to cut your font tree down in the Adobe suite to a couple dozen fonts at any given time is phenomenal (more-so with some families not grouped properly).

    Within Suitcase Fusion, I organize by foundry (Emigre, FF, etc.), font or client name. I then have folders for specialties such as script, inline, symbols, etc, making searching for and previewing an accent font a snap.

    With what now seems like an absurd amount of fonts shared among three computers, all of the actual font files live in a dropbox folder that needs some serious TLC; but that's where OS X's sweet search function and Suitcase Fusion come in.
