From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  thicket
  
      Multiple files output from some operation.
  
     The term has been heard in use at Microsoft to describe the
     set of files output when Microsoft Word does "Save As a
     Web Page" or "Save as HTML".  The process can result in a
     main XML or HTML file, a graphic file for each
     image in the original, a CSS file, etc.
  
     This can be an issue as XML can be used as the default
     format in Office 2000, and document management systems
     can't yet cope with the relationship between the files in a
     thicket when checking in and out.
