All these files are still in their original download name. When I download a new paper I dump it in the appropriate folder and add on a folder basis to organise, Medeley finds all the information in pic related automatically, the advantages of keeping it in the original name is it can more easily find missing information too. That might be your problem, but it should be finding the meta data on your newer pdfs.
You can have it synced to the cloud too, which sounds unnessecary untill you're sitting bored at an airport one day.
i just save the pdf under its designated name but I add first and last author names and title and year and journal abbreviation to it, if necessary. and i organize them simply in folders. filenames can be be long enough today, and searching files with the computer is easy enough. i never use reference manager, i hate it even if that means that formatting the reference section in a paper takes more time. it took me some years to get disciplined enough to do it that way, but i look down on people who are slaves to their shitty ms word refman plugins.
File names go in the form AbrvJrnlName.Issue.Page Organization is that all papers on a given overarching topic goes into one folder which has a spread sheet with all the citation information (Journal citation, authors, title, year), whether the paper is experimental, numerical or theoretical, and what particular aspect the paper looks at (the magnetic properties of the system, for example) along with a a few sentences summarizing the paper.
