So is #2 definitely how it works after I move my website to S-Drive and setup Cname to point from my traditional server to the new setup - then link to sub-folders? Man getting a straight answer here is like pulling teeth...:)

I very much would like to see a clear answer to this question as well...

I guess since I can't get a fully formed and complete answer for this question I will skip using S-Drive. My websites that rely on using sub-directories and links extensively work well on a traditional real server and it'd be stupid to switch to something that only "might" work for me.

With Direct FTP on S-Drive you have almost the exact same control over your directory structure as you would on any hosting server. Just use Direct FTP as you would on your existing server and it will work just fine.

You can test this out really right now with the free plan. Just upload everything to your S-Drive account out and see how it works.

I said #2 plus all you have to do is look at the source code for any s-drive site and see that the linking structure is nothing magical.;)
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.
