Developing a geodatabase from "scratch" vs existing data

Hey all,


I have experience as a user but am new to geodatabase management from an administrators perspective. I took on a new position and my initial task is to create a usable geodatabase for 4 users (including myself). The company had a GIS program approximately 5+ years ago and there is a patchwork of data located on the server. Any advice on the most efficient process to build the database? Attempt to salvage many of these unknown datasets or simply start from scratch and acquire datasets as I build the database?


A point in the right direction and some words of wisdom is greatly appreciated.
