old french

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'ancient language' is the definition.
'old french' can be an answer for 'language' (I've seen this before). I'm not sure about the 'ancient' bit.

'folder edited on network computer with bit of help' is the wordplay.
I cannot really understand how this works, but
an anagram of 'folder' is 'oldfre' which is located in the answer.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

'in' is the link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for old french that I've seen before include "Early European language" , "manner of speaking" .)
