*      Keeping Track of Files

 

 

Imagine that you have a room filled with toys and you were given the job of organizing all the toys. You decide to start the job by sorting all the toys and grouping similar toys together. For example, you put all of your red marbles in a box and all of your blue marbles in another box and a II of your green marbles in the third box. Then, you put all of those boxes into a bigger box and label it "marbles". Then, you might even put the "marbles" box into a bigger box that contains boxes such as "tennis balls" and "baseballs". You would name that big box "balls". In this example, the toys are like files and the boxes are like folders. Your computer is set up to store similar files in specific folders. Then similar folders can be put inside other folders, and so on. After working on the computer for a while, you would have created a number of files. Folders help you to organize your files. You can put boxes within boxes. Likewise, you can keep folders inside a folder and then both of them within another folder. Deleting unwanted files, restoring required files and renaming files help you to keep track of your files, (See Figure 4.6.10)
