Thanks for posting this! I believe that containers are like categories. Any proprietary files that cannot be neatly categorized as media or word documents are placed in a container. I never look at my containers folder because I have other ways of deleting such files.

I usually just search my Mac for very specific file extensions. My Final Cut Pro projects store rendered files on my computer, and as much as I'd love to turn rendering off, the program renders significantly faster when I leave it on. I once deleted my stored rendered files and brought one of my projects down from 63 gb to 3.8 gb.
