For a new account, the only entry in the list is a news.xml file with is a default RSS news feed that has already been created for you.  You will also notice the usage is 0 of 100Mb.  You get 100Mb of free space.  However, if you have purchased Repeat Signage, then email if you need any more. 

There is also the option of hosting files on your own website and then linking them to so that they appear in all the lists.  This can be useful with very large files.  For example, if you had a video which was 200Mb in size, then you could just use FTP to send it to your website, and then link your video to your files list.  (More on the late, but you would click on 'Files' then 'Documents and files list' and use the 'Add external links' button).
