Contents of my Premiere Elements Catalog folder

I'm currently using PSE9 and PSE2021 on the same Windows 10 computer.


When I open my PSE2021 "Photoshop Premiere Elements Catalog" folder, I see that it contains the folders of images that I've imported. Following those, there is a folder called "Photoshop Elements Catalog" (dated 10/27/2013 -- I have no idea where that date came from):

Can you tell me where this came from and what it is used for?


And a final folder called "Photoshop Elements Catalog 1" (dated 1/5/2021 -- the date of my latest updates):

My guess is that this is where the catalog data is stored for the "Photoshop Premiere Elements Catalog" folder. Can you explain what each of these entries is used for? 


Also, when I finish working on PSE2021, I select the option to backup the catalog on exit. Where is this backup saved?


Thanks for any help you can provide.
