For file organizing I like to keep a terminal running mc open, a smaller
terminal for syncing my disk writes, and depending on how many disks I am
working with, extra terminals open for other mc sessions. There are tools
for finding duplicates (fdupes is one). I use diff to compare files. I
suppose you're talking about pdf files, and there are utilities for
editing/merging those, etc. Good luck.
