That's standard - the system just merges all storage together. Well 
actually, it's more a case of what you get shown is what's in the 
database, and takes no account of where the file is stored. You can 
freely move the files between storage directories (eg, if I run short 
and add another disk, I'll move a load of the files to the new disk) 
and the system will just find them and you don't need to do anything.
