Working w/multiple geodatabases in ArcMap?

I have a file geodatabase that I created in my .mxd file, set as the default geodatabase, but have extracted some zipped .mdb and other .gdb (personal and file geodatabases) files into my local (C) drive for use.


My question is, should I leave these auxiliary geodatabases OUTSIDE of my default geodatabase, or would there be a benefit to right-clicking feature classes and clicking exporting to my default file geodatabase, or copying and pasting them into my default?


Additionally, if I place files from an .mdb into a default .gdb, is SQL (concerning wildcards in particular) syntax changed?


Thanks for anyone's help
