A storage container is a defined, specific location in high-volume storage. It resembles a folder (or directory) in a computer's file system, although there are some differences in the way files are handled.
A storage container can exist only at the highest level; it cannot have "subcontainers" as a computer folder can have subfolders. A container cannot be deleted without removing all the files in it first. In addition, a container cannot be directly renamed. In order to change the name of a container, first all of its files must be removed, the empty container must be deleted, a new container must be created with the new name, and finally the files must be uploaded into the new container.
