    So I just installed netatalk through cydia, and I'm planning to use my iPhone as a wireless external harddrive for some graphic design work I do on a mac. My question is, does it matter where I create a folder for my personal file storage? Just to keep things simple, I used finder to create a folder titled "_Storage" under the home directory after logging in as "mobile" (this also seems to be the "User" folder under "root"). Is it fine to create a new folder for my file storage here (or anywhere else, for that matter), or are there only specific places where it's fine create new folders and drag and drop stuff? I want to make sure I'm not doing anything that could cause iTunes to not recognize my iPhone or require an annoying restore.

    Thanks.

    It doesn't matter where, but I'd still stick it in the User folder.

    Thanks, I'm just uber-paranoid about messing around in the iPhone file system. I haven't done anything yet to require a restore, knock on wood, and I'm hoping to avoid the trouble.
