AIT isn't file uses a database (either JET or SQL). The
"folders" that are visible are virtual (they don't exist on your hard
drive). However, you can apply permissions based on various
settings...for example, writers in one project might be able to see
topics in another project but not make any modifications.

AIT uses dynamic check-in/check-out...when you open an object, you
have checked it out and no one else can make any changes to it. When
you close the object, it is checked back in.
