Ordinary files

This type of file is used to store your information, such as some text you have written or an image you have drawn. This is the type of file that you usually work with.

Files which you create belong to you - you are said to "own" them - and you can set access permissions to control which other users can have access to them. Any file is always contained within a directory.
