German term or phrase: Korb
Context: Testing checklist in project plan: "Projektbegleitende Prüfung der Bereinigung und überleitung der Daten von SMAR nach IS-T im Rahmen der IS-T Einführung".
Two points in the check list for the stage of "Datenbereinigung" are "1. Prüfung der Konzeption (insbesondere Datenanalyse und Korbdefinition)" and "2. Prüfung der Bearbeitung der Körbe einschliesslich der erfolg(t?)en Datenbereinigungen, Umschlüsselungen etc." Help! What DO they mean?

container
Explanation:
In databases one often speaks of containers, which are named sections of a storage device. So
1)a container could be a) a disk drive; b) a tape; c) a diskette; , tha) a Zip-disk that is any physical memory device that is formatted and has a name, or
2) it could be any folder in a file structure, that contains subfolders of files.
A "container defintion" would therefore probaly include a path, a name, and maybe even a description of the contents (if that is not clear from the folder name).
The processing would then include checking for empty folders, listing contents, and perhaps deleting or archiving documents that are oldert than a defined date.
