Hi mich6,

Very good question! The resources directory is basically your File Manager. Every time you upload a file using the File Manager (regardless of the format -- .wav, .doc, .pdf, .txt, .jpg) it's going to be in your resources directory. So let's say you've uploaded a file called rabbit.jpg, the URL / file path to this exact document is:
<!--

http://mysite.synthasite.com/resource....
-->

Now, regarding the organization of files in the File Manager. This is a feature that is very much under consideration here. It makes sense from a variety of perspectives, that certain types of files could be arranged in the appropriate folder, to give your files more organization and manageability.

But, in the meantime, I'm afraid that the only way to narrow your view down (of all the different files you have in your File Manager) is to go to the upper lefthand corner, where you see the "Show Files" text entry box, and use the drop-down arrow to narrow the choices displayed. (All Files, Images, Audio, Vidio).
