Tutorial 17 – Libraries
Libraries have taken something of a back seat with Windows 8.1, but they are still in the operating system. For those of you with powerful PC’s with multiple hard drives, Libraries can be very useful for organising your content.
This video has now been updated for Windows 8.1. If you haven’t downloaded Windows 8.1 yet, see this page.

Adding network drives to Libraries – If you store content on a network storage device (perhaps a NAS or even another computer on your home network), remember that if you add this content to a library in Windows 8, Windows will take a local copy of the data. That means all the data will be added to your computers hard drive, as well as remaining on your network device.
