Recommended use of subfolder for storage

Please add the recommendation to the docs to use a subfolder instead of the root folder of a hard disk for the storagenode.

Everyday we have people in the forum who got disqualified because there was a problem with mounting the drive. In the vast majority of cases it could have been avoided by just simply using a subfolder.

Completely agree with this one. I would also add the recommendation to move your identity to the same HDD as the data for similar reasons.
