File & Folder Management
You probably work with files and folders every day: maybe you open a document file, or save a video file, or move a music file. The idea of files and folders themselves are probably second nature to any computer user.
Sometimes, however, especially when you're trying to fix certain kinds of problems, you have to do things you might not be used to: configuring Windows to show files it normally hides, deleting unnecessary files, recovering accidentally deleted files, or maybe even repairing certain kinds of files.
