Where are my files kept and updating links

I'm farily new to using Contribute so I'm  not for sure that I'm even using the right lingo to describe what I want to find out. I'm looking for a place within Contribute CS5 that show where the files I have linked are kept. Becuase I'm not actually uploading images or files to the site..does this meand they remain on my computer? I work with several other programs (Drouple, wordpress) that I can see the file structure, file names, etc. Any hints? I'm on OSX 10.7.3


What I'm most worried about is when I update a file..for example my "training file" and I want to make sure that if its linked to more than  one place, that it is updating that file in ALL the places I have it linked to. Trying to always remember where I've linked this file to is hard! Is there an easy way to make sure that the file is getting updated to each link? I was thinking that if I could see the file structure, I could delete the file and replace it with the updated file and it would update on ALL the links. Any suggestion would be appreciated!

    I'm using CS3 on a PC so my options are probably different, but if you go into Edit --> Administer Websites --> and select the website, then you can see the user settings (assuming you are an administrator).  Select the user/role you want (you, in this case) and click on "Edit Role Settings".  Then select "File Placement" to see where your image and document files are being saved.  Even though you are not manually uploading those files, they are automatically uploaded when you click on the "Publish" button.


    Also, I don't know how it works in OSX, but in Win 7 you can see the file/directory structure by clicking on the "Choose" button in the upper right corner of the screen.


    Does that help?

    If you update the file, use the exact same name and save it to the same folder, it will update on all pages linked to it.

    Up near the top right, you'll see the word "choose". You will be able to navigate through the structure in a similar way as you do Windows explorer.
