I put he has the files and was marked wrong. When is a folder not also a file? I can only think of the things you had at school which can be called either.

hm. file and folder are practically synonyms in English: file: "a box or folded piece of card for keeping loose papers together and in order" folder: "a cardboard or plastic cover for holding loose papers, etc."

But in Norwegian fil and mappe are not. (Fil in the sense of "information" is marked as being a computer term.) Perhaps one of the people here with the power to add things can add files as an accepted alternative for folders
