There’s no File Explorer or Finder equivalent, it seems.
If you push Ctrl-O, you’ll get a little window that allows you navigate through some files. You can also get to files any time you use a web app that opens up a dialog box.
There’s no way from it to navigate through the full file structure of the computer.
We really don’t want users to ever think about the file structure of the machine. Think of this as a download shelf where you put things temporarily until sending up to the cloud.
I’m still in cases where I might want a local music file on my computer, so I can store it as a local file on my phone.
I have 80GB of music and went through this myself. But sometime back, I discovered Rhapsody and MOG. MOG is a $5 subscription per month, and it’s so convenient. I have it on my phone, on my computer. There’s a nice version of the app in the Chrome Web Store. If you try out Rhapsody, it lets you cache music offline or on an iPhone.
The fundamental problem with these systems is that they make a great assumption about the applications people use.
