*       What is Directory?    

 

Directories are like the drawers of a table. Files are like the actual things that we keep in the drawers. A directory is also known as a folder. A folder is used to put similar files together. For example, files containing drawings can be put into the Drawing folder; files containing text can be put into the Text folder. Different types of folders are made so that various types of files can be stored in them in an organized manner. We can create folders within a folder. These are called sub- folders. Therefore, a directory allows you to group your files in a meaningful way.  A directory is a logical area on the hard disk or floppy disk where files are kept. Each directory is used to keep one type of file.
