Pools, or storage pools, are the storage repositories in FotoWare. Each archive you create in FotoWare is tied to a storage pool where content is stored when you upload it. Depending on your FotoWare plan, you may have access to one or multiple storage pools. Pool settings can be configured in the Site Configuration (Tools - Site Configuration) by going to the Pools node.
Currently, you can only rename the pools on your plan, for example to identify different types of content that you choose to store in different pools. This way it will be easier to know which pool to use when creating archives.
