Is it O.K. to use Local Disk (C) for saving the same as My Documents?

Is it O.K. to use Local Disk (C) for saving files, etc. the same as My Documents?  I have done this for years, saving certain items under My Documents and certain others under Local Disk (C).  Someone suggested that I should not use Local Disk (C) as a saving place although I have found it helpful and in no way detrimental, as far as I can tell.

If you mean Local Disk (C) by directly in the root, I would suggest against this practice.  You should create folders off the C:\ for your storage needs.  Not only does it reduce clutter on the root directory, it reduces the risk of deleting something that is of great importance to the OS.
