Since day one, I have had some problems understanding the Mac file hierrarchy. 40 years of MS-DOS. Now that things are running along pretty well - I decided to dig a little deeper into the files. Following is my file structure. Why do I have two library files and two download files?
RD's Macbook Pro
Mac HD -------
Users --------------RB ---------
Documents (see below)
You Tube Downloads
Microsoft User Data
Real Player DL's
I still need to breakdown some folders into more meaningful ones - but why the two Library and Download Folders? My DL folder under Mac HD is empty - all go to the one users. Lastly, in the Applications folder are some folders relating to mostly downloaded apps. Could I move those folders out of Apps and into a new folder at the same structure level?
Does this look correct or do I have some duplicates or other errors?
