Navigating Folders in Crossover Mac
Due to the nature of running two operating systems on your machine,
there are a number of drives and folders to navigate, including (Z:), (Y:), (C:), (Desktop) and (My Computer).
Thus, it can be confusing to navigate through the folders when you first install, save or open Netica files on your Mac.
Here is a breakdown of the various drives and folders under Crossover Mac:
1. Desktop: This is a Windows reference. This is NOT your Mac desktop.
There should be a separate folder in that same list of directories called "My Mac Desktop".
You need to install Netica on your Mac through the (Z:) drive.
Choose ‘My Mac Desktop’ if you want to access non-application files on your Mac.
2. My Computer: If you open ‘My Computer’, you will find 3 drives:
/(Z:) – this also shows up as an icon of a hard drive with a blank (/)
Drive_c: If you are used to working on a PC, the usual way to save a file is the C drive.
This is not the case when you are working with Crossover Mac.
The C drive has a folder named "Program Files". Do not be fooled, these are not the Program Files of your Mac!
(Y:) takes you directly to the main account directory of your Mac, where you will see a folder for your Desktop, Downloads, Documents, etc.
/(Z:) is basically the equivalent to the c:drive in Windows. The path to your Mac Applications is: Z/Applications/Crossover
Save Netica in the top directory of the Crossover folder.
Remember: You can save your BN files anywhere on your Mac.
If you are trying to open a BN file from somewhere on your Mac, the path to your Desktop is:
Z/Users/YourUserName/Desktop. Or from “My Mac Desktop”.
