I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

These directorys are created by frontpage to store your different components of your webpage eg: Scripts, Images, WebBots and so no. If it there is nothing in them then your pages are not needing them. Frontpage creates some as default directorys and others it adds later as needed. In my experiance Frontpage uses less Web space because of there system.
