Last time we learned how to list files, now let's see where those files are.All your files reside on your hard drive, either internal, external or SSD.

Nice write up vansmith. Its good to see someone giving a insight to the command line, so much more, so people don't get scared of it. It is such a powerful tool in Mac OS X . . .
