Hi Chaps,

I was wondering if there is any reason why you has defaulted all media to be under Media/Default/<media> ?

There used to be a settign to change this, but was wondering if there is a reason behind it.

Cheers, Nick

First it has to be somewhere ;) thus /Meida. Then each tenant needs its own folder, thus /Media/Default for the default tenant. Try creating another tenant, it will be /Media/AnotherTenant.

You can also use the Media Folder module from the gallery, which allows you to specify which folder you want. The purpose is to allow farm scenarios by pointing to a shared drive.
