We originally started on Act 2010. When 2011 came out, I removed 2010 and did what I thought was a clean install.
Now I find that I have the following folder:
I find that Databases are in the Root of #4 instead of in #4 under the Databases subfolder.
Backups are in #5 in the Backup subfolder.
Does Act really need all these directories? Is this an artifact of an earlier version being installed?
Is there a definitive list of what directories should be created under a "clean" install and a directory map of what should be where?
The current structure just seems overly redundant and convoluted.

I generally place all ACTdata in a folder c:\actdata and then in the preferences point thesse to the new default folder as I have seen some issues when the data is in the mydocuments folder.
Once this is done you can generally delete the folders created by the current and previous versions.
