That's odd; because when I looked inside /Documents
I found 2 folders:

   'My Revolution Studio'

   'My Revolution Media'

right below the  'My HyperNext' folder

now (Mac OS X) I did not put any of those 3 folders there;
so, possibly (as there is the HyperNext one there as well as the RunRev 
the OS is doing something by itself.
