Explanation on applying revision labels on directories vs. not applying them?

For example,
If a revision label is applied to three files (say A, B, and C) located at 7 different directories from the root, what would be the advantages of labeling each directory leading to those three files (A, B, and C) vs. not labeling them?


Answer/Solution:

Attaching a label to a folder always attaches it to the current configuration of each folder and item. It is not possible to label a past revision of a folder, although it can be done for items (Change Request, Files, Requirements).

Hence, attaching a revision label to a folder without attaching it to its contents is rather useless. Revision labels are really used for the items inside those folders rather than for the folders themselves.
