Just a quick bit of background. I am a long time Windows, C# developer and for a new project for my employer, I've had to transition to OSX and begin learning iOS development. In other words, I'm still quite new to the Mac/OSX environment.
Earlier today I decided that I'd close out of XCode and re-organize my testing and learning project, and projects that I've created in XCode that hold assets I will most likely need to reuse. When I fired XCode back up, I was surprised to see that all of my recent projects were still in the Recents list and they were pointing to the new file location! Sweet!
How did XCode know where my projects were located? Is a function of the Operating System, the File System or does XCode have some form of intelligence built into the system to detect these type of questions?
