File Management#

File management is the act of managing the data represented by files. Files contain information, data, and we can manipulate that data, delete it, add to it, move it around, etc. That's what the management of files involves and we'll explore what you can do in this section.

Inside of our Ubuntu VM, we have a file system we can use to create files, move them around, edit them, delete them, etc. We'll take advantage of this to learn some new skills.
