Windows Yes, the Windows 8 rumour mill is really spinning up now. This time around though, they're not really rumours, since the information is coming from Rafael Rivera and Paul Thurrott, long-time Microsoft enthusiasts with loads of insider access. They've got a bunch of screenshots showing a work in progress of... A ribbon in Explorer. And yes, it looks just as bad as it sounds.

Regarding dragging into libraries, the target folder isn't a mystery at all. When you configure a library, one folder is designated the default, so copying files to a library, or creating new files happen in that default folder.

The libraries folder also only shows the duplicate folder names when you sort by location. Sorting different ways displays as normal files. This behavior is okay, though, when you actually use Libraries more extensively than what the default settings present itself as.

I seemed to recall that this was configurable. However it still doesn't change the fact that there is no indication at the time of copying as to where it's going, and it remains a mystery for anyone who has never explored the configuration options.

if you are using libraries to copy the file, then presumably you will use the library to access the file again so the physical location is meaningless if you have made sure to set it up correctly so as not to store any files on your 60 gig SSD or something.
