Remarks

Each library can contain one or more locations that can be browsed or searched by a user using Windows Explorer. The locations are defined by search connectors using elements in a container element.

A library can have a unique set of properties, and locations in the library can also have unique sets of properties. These properties are defined in elements within a container element.
