It only saves the KPhotoAlbum database (the file index.xml). In this file 
all the information you told KPA about your pictures, like persons, 
keywords, locations, etc., is stored.

Because of the same reasons you would save a document you write with a text 
processor of your choice. You don't have to if everything goes well, but 
just in case...

I'm afraid that's not possible as KPA doesn't really use the folder 
structure on your disk.

What you can do if there are not too many subfolder per folder is open a 
folder, select all images (Ctrl-A) and assign a token to the images. Repeat 
this for every subfolder. Afterwards go "Home" and select all images with 
the corresponding token.
