Exploring Files and Folders
You can use Windows Explorer to navigate to the Data Files you need for the rest of this
tutorial. Refer back to the information you provided in the “Planning Your Organization”
section and note the drive on your system that contains your Data Files. In the following
steps, this is drive F, a USB drive. If necessary, substitute the appropriate drive on your sys-
tem when you perform the steps.
To navigate to your Data Files:
1. Make sure your computer can access your Data Files for this tutorial. For example, if you
are using a USB drive, insert the drive into the USB port.
Trouble? If you don’t have the Data Files, you need to get them before you can proceed.
Your instructor will either give you the Data Files or ask you to obtain them from a specified
location (such as a network drive). In either case, be sure that you make a backup copy of
your Data Files before you start using them, so that the original files will be available on your
copied disk in case you need to start over because of an error or problem. If you have any
questions about the Data Files, see your instructor or technical support person for assistance.
2. In the Windows Explorer window, click the expand icon next to the drive containing
your Data Files, such as UDISK 2.0 (F:). A list of the folders on that drive appears.
3. If the list of folders does not include the FM folder, continue clicking the expand icon
to navigate to the folder that contains the FM folder.
4. Click the FM folder. Its contents appear in the Folders pane and in the right pane of the
Windows Explorer window. The FM folder contains the Cases, Review, and Tutorial folders,
as shown in Figure 7. The other folders on your system might vary.
