IMPORTANT - DO NOT RENAME these folders, as they are route folders.
What is a route folder?
Consider a route folder as the Main folder and the folders/files within as Sub folders. If you give someone full access to the Main folder, all the folders and files under the Main folder will be accessible to that person.
NOTE: The New Folder option is only available by first opening a route folder.
