In the previous sessions you practiced working with icons, windows, and folders. But apart from moving things around, you couldn't make any changes to the information on the system disk because the disk was write-protected. (All the adjustments you made to icons and windowssize, position, and colorwere only temporary. You can make such changes permanently only if you're working with a disk that's not write-protected.)
Now you'll have a chance to experiment, using a practice copy of the system disk that isn't write-protected. That way, you can change what's on the practice disk without worrying about losing any informationyou'll still have your write-protected original disk.
In this session you'll learn to
¥ initialize a disk
¥ make a copy of a disk
¥ move files and folders from place to place
¥ create new folders
¥ rename file and folder icons
¥ discard items you no longer need
Some of the tasks you'll learn in this session can be performed more than one way. For ease of learning, however, only one method is presented in this tutorial, and a cross-reference to the appropriate chapter of the owner's reference is provided in the margin in case you'd like to read about the other methods.
