It also contains another set of sub-folders, which includes Documents, Music, Photos, Apple Time Machine® Backup and Videos, which can be used to organize this public content.
  • Apple Time Machine® Backup - If you are using a Mac® computer, you will see this folder, which contains files from incremental backups that can be restored at a later date.
