5. Project counts
- This can show three values
- number of projects you currently have in the cloud (in this case 4).
- the maximum projects you are allowed to store in the cloud (in this case 30 for a Plus Member).
- the number of pending projects that members have shared with you that you have not yet accepted (in this case 1).

6. Cloud storage location -
The first location in the list,, is the cloud storage for the VideoLinkwell server you are logged into. It will list any projects that are in the cloud that you don't have downloaded and saved in one of your local locations. It shows the number of projects you have in the cloud and the total number of projects you are allowed to have in the cloud. This includes projects you create and upload to the cloud, and projects that are shared with you by other VideoLinkwell members. In this case the user has 2 projects in the cloud of the total allowed of 100 projects.

7. Default local location - Movies/VideoLinkwell
This is the default storage location for projects to be downloaded on your computer when you download them from the cloud. This folder is created in the Movies folder of your Home folder "~/Movies/VideoLinkwell" the first time you open Videolinkwell. Do not delete this folder from the Finder.
