project settings difficulties

I am a new user having previously used Vegas. When I first started testing Da Vinci. I just plunged in not realising that I was automatically setting the Project Settings as well as the the Da Vinci master settings. The definitive guide that I am now working through also doesn't spell out the critical nature nor the names of these settings. My basic set up consists of a PC with 2 Tb of space and a NAS with plenty of disk space. The original settings for cache and etc put these storage areas in the middle of a project file. I now am trying to back out of this and to find rational place to put these. Setting I was advised to put some of these settings with each project, but at the present time I am not skilled in which project settings I need to change each time. especially with the introductory educational series. I have been experimenting with putting a media storage area at the root of my c drive but would that just fill up my C drive needlessly? What files do I need to create and where? I am making a mess and want to avoid this as I am accidentally beginning to misdirect the storage of my older projects.
It occurred to me that possibly the problem might be relieved by the purchase of the full version of Da Vinci 15 , Is that the case or would the same problems arise? I realise that I do not know where Da Vinci stores the project files, and having the option of storing all of those files together would be helpful, especially if one knew which files could be discarded at the termination of the project. I also don't know which files need to be stored for the maintenance of the Da Vinci environment separate from individual project files nor whether I have to make decisions about them.
