Part 2. Working with Disks, Folders, and Files

Part 2. Working with Disks, Folders, and Files

The tasks in this part might not be glamorous or exciting, but they're the foundation of everything you do on your Mac. It's all about files, folders, and the disks that hold them. Every time you create a new document or receive an email attachment, that information is stored in a file on your hard drive, and the file is in turn stored within a folder. Mac OS X provides many ways for you to view and modify folder contents and file attributes, so you're in control of your Mac.

The tasks in this part teach you how to create new folders and view their contents in different ways, how to move and copy files, how to organize your hard drive and keep it uncluttered, and how to use Apple's .Mac online service to perform regular backups of your important files and synchronize your vital information across multiple computers.
