How to create a new folder
I would like to know how to create a new folder. Currently I have one folder and I am able to create subfolders, however I have no idea how to create a new folder. It's a new software for me and I am not familiar with it therefore thank for any help!

RE: How to create a new folder
I'm not sure to understand your problem but:
The root folder is UNIQUE. You can create a hierarchy of desired complexity of subfolder inside it using the command "add subfolder".
The structure is similar to a standard filesystem (a real one, don't think to windows virtual directories).

Yes I know that i can "add subfolder" however I would like to create several root folders. I would like to avoid this situation:

FOLDER
- subfolder1/ subfolder
-subfolder2/ subfolder

I would like to have it like that:
FOLDER
- subfolder
FOLDER
-subfolder,

I hope You understand what I', trying to saySmile

Yes, you CAN'T!
Is like a unix filesystem: the root is one and only one.

Answer this question:
supposing to have your second case: in wich folder are you to see the listed the two main folders?

(answer correctly let you understad why there's ony one root)

RE: How to create a new folder
Here are the two perspectives you can think of it from:

Windows:
In a traditional sense the root folder would be similar to your hard drive (C:\). If you want to store files they can either be stored on the root (C:\somefile.txt) or you can create a folder to store it (C:\someFolder\somefile.txt).

Unix:
Here just think of the root directory as actually being just slash (/), everything exists under slash but there is nothing above it. So same example you could store files under the root (/somefile.txt) or you just create folders to do it (/home/someUserFolder/someFile.txt).

Hopefully this makes sense to you, what you are asking does not make sense because the functionality is already there.

Thank You, I understand nowSmile Lets say I wanted to create hard disc C: and D:, however as You pointed it out, it's useless to create D:, because actually everything You can find at C:/

sorry for missunderstandingSmile
best regards
