Encrypted container folders have an advantage over encrypted container files like the ones that are created by zuluCrypt,TrueCrypt,VeraCrypt among other projects that use file based encrypted containers.

Advantages are:

The encrypted container folder can freely grow and shrink as files are added,removed,grow or shrink. File based encrypted containers are limited to the size of the container and the size is set when the container is created and does not change to reflect the amount of data the container is hosting.

Disadvantages are:

The encrypted container folder does not hide the space usage of its contents and an adversary can derive meaning from space usage of the encrypted container folder. File based container hides the space utilization of the volume and the only thing an adversary can see is the fixed size of the container.

More advantages/disadvantages are discussed here.
