I'm new to iMacs. Thus, this is a very easy question for the experienced... Within my old Win XP D: drive (D: was my Data drive - before it blew up), I had: D:\Data\Dad`s files\ D:\Data\Wife`s files\ D:\Data\Kid-1 files\ D:\Data\Kid-2 files\ etc. etc. They would load their application (like MS Word) and save their newly created data file into their own D: folder. This structure kept everyone's files organized. And for ease of backups, I simply backed up the main D:\DATA\ folder. In thinking of our new iMac (installed yesterday), can I use the same structure (off its My HD root)? Discovered I can create a new folder using Right Mouse button (got that figured out). But, I'm wondering how their documents would reside in the DOC-Document's folder. For example... Is the real DATA file in the approprite HDD folder and only its Alias exist in the DOC-Document's folder? Sorry if I'm not using correct description names as well. But, I am a slow (but steady) `learner` of our new impressive iMac system... thanks. .
