Normally, you should store each Delphi project you create in its own directory. If you begin a project using any Project Template other than the Blank Project template, Delphi prompts you for a directory path and then (if necessary) creates the specified directory for the project. If you begin with the Blank Project template, Delphi saves it by default in the \BIN directory, unless you specify otherwise. To avoid cluttering this directory, and potentially overwriting files, create the project directory from the Windows operating environment before saving the new project for the first time. (See "Beginning a project with a Project Template" on page 122 for more information about Project Templates.)
Note Projects can reside in any network or local drive location that your computer can access. Delphi doesn't require you to store projects in separate directories, but you will find it much easier to manage them if you do.
